Rounding off this extraordinary weekend of Carnival festivities, Sunday at the Magic Garden will be all about celebrating Caribbean culture, music and food. All day AND all night.
Join us in our garden during the day for an authentic community experience as we serve up some delicious Caribbean inspired food and live acoustic music from some of our music family who will be performing reggae classics on guitar and piano. Who knows, a singalong might even break out from time to time.
Sunday night is another story all together…
