Over 10,000 party orientated people converge on Jouvert Beach, Kingston in the very early hours of Easter Sunday for the Jamaica Easter Carnival. It starts as a daybreak parade and ends up in more of a colourful march as costumed revellers join in to get down with the soco and calypso sounds, played by top local bands, start-a churning and grinding.

Ocho Rios and Montego Bay are the other Easter party central options.
