A group of young Shortknee characters rest on the roadside, awaiting their turn to parade across the judging point on Kirani James Boulevard. This year's carnival theme was centered around the traditional Shortknee character and bands of all sizes gathered from around Grenada to parade through the streets of St. George's.
From my experience, Shortknee participants are predominantly male, and it was lovely to see so many fathers passing the colorful tradition to their eager sons.
