Corpus Christi means “body of Christ” in Latin, and the holiday celebrates the belief that the bread of the holy Eucharist becomes the “real” body of Jesus during mass.

In Grenada, there is much going on besides the mass services and religious street parades on Corpus Christi. There are puppet shows, bull fights, huge “music tents”, and all manner of cultural events.

On the day before Corpus Christi, there is a colourful secular parade with characters wearing gigantic papier mache heads. The total festivities continue for a full week.
