Most of Bonaire's nightlife consists of sitting on a quiet beach and sipping a Polar beer. Top island performers, including Moogie, migrate from one resort to another throughout the week. You can find information in the free magazines (published once a year) Bonaire Affair and Bonaire Nights. The twice-monthly Bonaire Update Events and Activities pamphlet is available at most restaurants.
Carnaval, generally held in February, is the usual nonstop parade of steel bands, floats, and wild costumes, albeit on a much smaller scale than on some other islands. It culminates in the ceremonial burning in effigy of King Momo, representing the spirit of debauchery.
