Flying High at the Tobago Flying Colours Kite FestivalFor a tiny island like Tobago (overshadowed as it is by its sister island and Caribbean culture juggernaut, Trinidad) there are a surprising number of annual events that draw travelers to its shores from far and wide.
The biggest are the Tobago Jazz Experience in April and, of course, the world famous goat races during Easter. But, for me at least, nothing matches the lighthearted fun of the annual Tobago Flying Colours Kite Festival.
Launched back in 2000 by Valerie Critten-Stewart as a way to give back to her adopted island, the festival has been successful in no small part due it its founder’s passion.
It’s truly an uncommon Caribbean experience and a must if you're near Tobago over the holidays.
