Vibrant Colors of Sint Maarten Shine in National Cultural Parade (Video)

When I first came to Sint Maarten I was just another tourist longing for beautiful beaches. It always starts out that way, but more often than not tourists who come to the Friendly Island once inevitably find themselves itching to return. The more I returned, the more I wanted to learn about the island, its people, culture, and traditions.

I always love learning about this beautiful place. And Sint Maarten’s Day is another great way to indulge in the customs and traditions that make the island so unique.

Sint Maarten’s Day is celebrated each year on November 11. In this video, you’ll see highlights from the Sint Maarten National Cultural Parade, which is what Sint Maarten’s Day is all about – cultural pride. It’s a day set aside to honor Saint Martin of Tours, and to revisit the history and traditions of this glorious island.

I hope you enjoy it!

I fell in love with the island of Saint Martin the first time I visited to celebrate my 40th birthday in May of 2009. Since then, I've spent most birthdays there, and have visited countless other times getting to know this wonderful place and the friendly locals that make it so special. I adore the culture, the people, the community, and the beauty of this stunning island. SXM Strong is a website that I started to support humanitarian relief efforts following Hurricane Irma. There was no plan, it just evolved as I witnessed the devastation that Irma caused the island and the huge need to communicate and disseminate information about what had happened and how people could help support this island and its people.
