In the British Virgin Islands, almost anything makes a good excuse for a party, and a full moon is no exception. Numerous places around the islands host such parties (which as the name suggests are held on the night of each and every full moon).
One of our favorites is in Trellis Bay. A local artist, Aragorn, has crafted numerous steel fire balls. These are spheres with silhouettes of interesting patterns and people built into them and intended to be loaded with wood which is subsequently set on fire making an extraordinarily interesting “fire pit”. The Aragorn has similarly constructed a number of human like figures that can also be set ablaze. Perhaps this is an homage to Burning Man. A number of these fire balls are set around the beach and in shallow water. They are set ablaze for these full moon parties which, as usual, involve prodigious amounts of alcohol and food consumption–the beachfront restaurants and shops being open for the occasion.
