Full Moon at Trellis Bay
As regularly as the sun rises in the morning and sets at night, Trellis Bay will hold its famous Full Moon Party – this month on Saturday, August 29th. With vendors lining the beach, arts and crafts for sale, music and food, this fun event is ideal for families and all in search of a good time. Partygoers can get their groove on to live music and dancing in the sand. The traditional West Indian buffet is great, so get there early for that as well as the gravity defying Moko Jumbies who will wend their way through the crowd. The fireballs are lit around 9pm – which are extremely atmospheric with the music and the vibe. There truly is something here for everyone.
