Port Huron Museum is presenting CARNAVAL a window into annual community celebrations around the world. The exhibit opened this weekend and will remain at the museum through August 11, at main Carnegie Center site. When you think of CARNAVAL (kar na vall’) do you think of Ferris wheels and cotton candy? Or three rings, elephants and an aerialist? Not this time! This exhibit explores eight different communities from Europe and the Americas where CARNAVAL is a major point in the year for the people in these cultures. Some are religious in nature (Mardi Gras) and some are steeped in local tradition (Moco Jumbi, Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago). Residents often spend all year planning, creating and carrying out these festivities for the biggest annual celebration of these communities. The exhibit includes international folk art, masks, costumes, photo murals, musical instruments, video presentations, and hands-on interactive displays. There are a number of programs for families, as well as build a float in which you can help build the float for the Rotary Interational Day parade.
