Haiti Kanaval 2016 In Pictures #AyitiToutan #Kanaval2016

Haiti’s Kanaval 2016 was live, ya’ll. Today marks the last day of Kanaval 2016, Haiti’s three day Mardi Gras celebration. Rio de Janeiro does one. New Orleans has one too. But Haiti…Haiti…Let’s look at how it went down.

Well firstly, the first day of the carnival was canceled. According to a press release that was disseminated on social media, this was due to concerns about physical safety of attendees. The show resumed on the second and third day, and according to a tweet released by Haiti’s National Police Force, it was without any major incidents. Shall we look at some photos?
