The Carnival season for Sint Maarten starts right here, next to the Atrium Beach Resort and Spa. Big rigs with huge sound systems and speakers mounted will meet up at KimSha Beach on March 18th for the Causeway Jump-Up.

With Soca music blaring, the trucks will start driving through Simpson Bay, followed by up to 10,000 islanders and vacationers to celebrate the start of the festivities. The jump-up starts at 8 PM, will lead over the Causeway, back through Cole Bay and all the way to the Grand Marche supermarket in Philipsburg. This is a super casual even, no costumes yet. 

This is were it starts:
