It's Mardi Gras in Haiti, when Millions of Haitian Diasporas come to join the annual celebration. It is a time when everyone has the equal opportunity to have fun and enjoy. Haiti has a very rich multifarious cultural heritage with roots of French, Spanish, Taino and African traditions under influence of Caribbean practices. Haitians respect voodoo beliefs which although do not incorporate with the foreign tourists but they do come in Haiti during the carnivals to experience some of its practices. Every year, immediately following the New Year celebration, Haiti Carnival becomes the centre of attraction for peoples' existence-- a celebration of life, the festivities burst on to the streets of the Haitian towns.
The President has displayed a special interest in the event unlike his predecessors. The focus of the event is primarily on the historic city itself. 'Gonaives' is a city in the western Haiti, was originally an Indian village called Gonaibo, now a commercial centre, a port and natural harbor on the fertile Artibonite Plain where the French captured Haitian national revolutionary hero François Dominique Toussaint Louverture in 1802.

The city again came to the limelight within a short period in 1804 when Jean-Jacques Dessalines announced Haiti's independence from France at the town's Place d'Armes on January 1, 1804. The most notable landmark of the city is the Musée du Centenaire, inaugurated in 1904 to commemorate country's first century of independence.

Haiti is just about ready to start the carnival season. The cultural event, which takes the art of reveling to almost religious heights, will operate this year under the theme "Tet Kole Power Yon Ayiti Pi Djanm", translated to "Heads Together for a Stronger Haiti".
The announcement came at the official launch by the carnival committee held at the Ministry of Culture in the country's capital. The 2014 season, slated to run from March 2 to March 4 will continue the recent tradition of being hosted outside of Port-au-Prince. As such, this year's festival will carry marchers through the city of Gonaives.

Under the theme "Pote Kole pou n avanse", the 2014 edition of the Jacmel Carnival will take place on Sunday, February 23. The festivity, expected to be steeped in the rich culture of the country, will be an outdoor, day-long event that will have spectators thrilling to the sounds, smells, and sights that only Haiti can offer.
As said by the South-East's Office of Tourism consultant, Michaelle Craan, the festival will show Haiti's particular heritage, passed down from folklore through decades' worth of oral tradition. The event, a mainstream highlight of Haitian society, has been a customary rite that allows those who take part to feel part of something unifying and special.
