All carnivals are free to attend – but remember to get there early to secure yourself a good vantage point and somewhere to park your car.
During the carnivals there are various road closures and diversions around the towns to allow the carnival processions to take place. Follow @islandecho on Twitter for the latest information each day.
In addition to the carnivals themselves, the funfair will once again be returning to selected towns on the Island. Details are included below.
