Even if carnival isn't for everyone, it's hard to deny the energy and spirit it brings to the islands. Rarely is there so much colour, so much joy, and so much mess concentrated into one long weekend.

Here's some of the carnival moments we love the most from this year.

1. The prep work

2. The extraordinary detail

3. The pure party-mode

4. The colours

5. The priorities

6. The parades

7. The joyful crowds

8. The parody costumes

9. The inevitable Serkin tributes
