We know very few people who get excited about flag day (and even fewer who know when it is), but throw out the words “flag party,” and suddenly people start listening.
The Caribbean American Phoenix Carnival Cultural Association of Arizona, also known as CAPAZ, is bringing back its Caribbean-style carnival this month with a weekend of parades, masquerades, and over-the-top costumes.
Of course, since every festival deserves a good warmup, CAPAZ will kick off the caribbean celebration with a good old-fashioned Flag Party.
The party goes down Friday, May 24, at Brick and features live soca artists and DJs, including 4Play, DArk Vader, Ziah, Skilzz, Illmatic, and more.
Wear, wave, or wrap yourself in the country of your origin (or simply the one you find most appealing) and get ready to party in a way the United Nations has only imagined.
Fri., May 24, 9 p.m.-2:30 a.m., 2013
