J’ouvert is a large street party during Carnival and is held every year in September in Belize. According to Wikipedia, J’ouvert is a contraction of the French jour ouvert, or dawn/day break.
The celebration involves calypso and soca bands and it usually starts well before dawn and peaks a few hours after sunrise.
This morning over 1000 people came out to participate in Jouvert 2014 in Belize City as part of the September Celebration states the Belize Tourism Board Facebook page.
