The parade starts anywhere between midnight to 3am and runs for over eight hours, so make sure you get some rest before. Be aware that organizers can change the start time in the case of bad weather (especially rain).
If you have the time to make your own costume (it doesn't have to be elaborate) you can join in one of the Fun Groups.
Reserve your tickets online
Ensure that you don't miss out on the best tickets by reserving your seats through the Junkanoo ticket website.
Cheer for your favorite group
The Bahamian people are extremely passionate about supporting their Junkanoo group. Consider this the “Super Bowl” of the Bahamas, where everyone cheers for their favorite football team.
Eat at one of the local food stalls
There are plenty of local food stalls that pop up near the parade. If you see it, sample the conch fritters, guava duff (guava cake) or rum cake.
