Most of us associate Nashville, Texas with Stetsons, cowboy boots and country music. But on Saturday 19 May all of this will change, when Nashville hosts its first ever Caribbean carnival.

The event, which is being promoted as Nashville Carnival and Caribbean/South American Food Festival, will be held at Cumberland Park, 592 South 1st Street, Nashville, 37213. The first official band launch will be that of Carnival Kingdom on Saturday 24 March.
