Every Friday night, Gros Islet streets are closed to traffic and vendors set up stalls selling crafts and an array of delicious barbecued food, from lambie (conch), lobster and chicken to steamed fish. Soca and reggae blare from huge speaker-boxes, the drinks flow – sold from mobile bars and street-side establishments – and, by 22.00 or so, everyone’s dancing on the tarmac in a cross-section of streets towards the beach. It’s all pretty good-natured, though single women can expect plenty of attention from would-be dancing partners. Parking can be difficult, and using taxis is the best option.
