Junkanoo Festival. The Culture of the Bahamas in St Augustine.

Junkanoo Festival. The Culture of the Bahamas in St Augustine. Young people and musicians from Abaco, Bahamas. The Junkanoo Festival also provide Bahamians with an opportunity to trace their family’s heritage in St. Augustine. Following their defeat by the Americans in the Revolutionary War, more than 17,000 British loyalists fled south from their former colonies to a safe haven in St. Augustine. Unfortunately for them, the Spanish re-claimed Florida in 1783 and the loyalists were evacuated. As a result, many former St. Augustine residents started their lives over in Abaco.
