Most of the tourists who reach Aruba, do not have the opportunity to visit the island on the annual carnival’s days and experience the beauty of its events. For those, Aruba holds every Thursday evening, all year long, an amazing carnival event that demonstrates the carnival’s atmosphere.
The festival is held in San Nicolas, 33 km south east to Oranjestad the capital of Aruba. San Nicolas is also named Aruba’s “Sunrise City”.
