Trellis Bay on Beef Island in the BVI is famous for its Full Moon Festival. This monthly event which is a gathering of locals, sailing ship inhabitants and other fun finders out for an evening of dancing, drinking and festivities. Locals in colorful garb balance way up high on stilts while dancing in the streets with anyone crazy enough to join them. Of course, I was right there with them in the midst of the craze.
The main theme is the Fireball Party which is the cultural event not to miss. I was still using the Minolta DiMage Z1 so the images are not a crisp as I would like but still show the spectacular setting of fire on the water. The Fireball rests on the water fully ablaze and was mesmerizing as flames flickered in the breeze.
