New Year’s Day is a time of resolutions and starting fresh for some, while for others it is spent recovering from a big, late night spent with friends and family.

The biggest events take place in the capital city of Kingstown, but smaller events take place all over the island. The most notable fireworks display on Saint Vincent and the Grenadines is held annually on Bequia Island. Kingstown and other locales have interesting stalls selling seasonal, local goods to tourists.

The festive season actually commences in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines on 21 December, which is a holiday called “December Solstice” and continues through Christmas Day on 25 December and Boxing Day on 26 December all the way through New Year’s Eve to New Year’s Day.
