'Jump Up' Street Parties (Gros Islet)

Every Friday night at Gros Islet, locals and tourists get together to dance and chill until the wee hours of the morning. Enjoy the Caribbean night to the rhythm of calypso, zouk, and reggae blasting out from various loudspeakers in the area. Soak up the summery vibes amongst the stands of street vendors selling ribs, fish, and jerk chicken, while you sip at a very Saint Lucian rum punch or a typically local Piton beer. If you want to get a real taste of the local nightlife, head down to 'Jump Up' past 11pm, when the families of tourists have finally called it a day. At this time, a lot of the locals will have ended their shifts and will be heading out to party.
