Each Easter weekend the village of Buccoo features goats racing helter-skelter to the finish line while prodded by their "jockeys" who sprint behind them, holding the animals at the end of long ropes. The goats are prepped for race day with stamina-training and swimming exercises and special diets.
In the crab race, jockeys use a short length of string to guide the competing crustaceans towards a checkered flag. The crabs' reward for their usually slow effort is inclusion in a pot of crab and dumpling. There are no winners.
Fisherman"s Festival is held in June to celebrate St Peter's Day, St Peter being the patron saint of fishermen. The largest celebration is held in Charlotteville's Man O' War Bay. It includes street and beach parties, sports activities and other events.
The world's only annual festival celebrating the drum is held annually in Toronto, Canada.
Food is the heart of another of Tobago's tradition, the Harvest Festival. Harvests are community feasts held throughout the year in different villages. Villagers invite family, friends and strangers to their homes to share thanksgiving meals. The festivities begin with a church service and end with a cantata(musical entertainment performed by the church choir).
