  Full Moon Parties  
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A personal note about full moon parties...
The Trellis Bay event
is an incredible assortment of activities, including mocko jumbie stilt dancers, fireballs, live music, food & drink, fireworks, and more. It's a truly memorable event for adults and children - a party for all ages. These photos will give a good sense of the colorful fun that these folks offer. The party at Bomba's is often more akin to tropical frat party, sprawling across the road and sand. There is food, drink, and music at a gathering that can vary from boring to quite "entertaining." Bomba and his notorious venue is certainly a "phenomenon," but for an authentic and joyous Caribbean event, Trellis Bay is the one that will never disappoint you. Foxy's Taboo on Jost,
Paradise Club (Cane Garden Bay) & Cocomaya (Virgin Gorda), and others have also started this tradition. Click here for a good summary.

You should check to see if Trellis' party is happening. Trellis Bay Market is probably the best site for tracking events for that enclave, including the full moon party dates.

Full Moon Parties
Note: Party dates can change, and do not always fall on the night of the actual full moon.
I have seen this list of party dates (below) posted from a couple resources, but the best thing is to inquire when you are in the BVI.
