Maskanoo is an annual cultural event organised by the Turks and Caicos Hotel and Tourism Association (TCHTA) and the Cultural & Arts Commission (CAC). It is an event that will showcase the best of the islands' cultural heritage, mixing Junkanoo (taken from TCI's Bahamian heritage) with Masquerade to create "Maskanoo". The third annual Maskanoo event will be held on Wednesday December 26, 2012 (National Holiday). The event will once again be held in the tourist capital of Providenciales, following a route along Grace Bay road between the Regent Village and the Salt Mills Plaza. Persons attending the event will enjoy a street parade, local music, island food, cultural items on sale, arts, entertainment as well as a street jump-up at the end of the event.
