J’ouvert Morning is typically Eastern Caribbean, so Curacao doesn't celebrate it. However the 'gran despedida' (grand farewell) is somewhat similar. It takes place at night, and some people have little lights added to their costumes.

It is the last parade for the carnival season, so they end it off with fireworks as well.

I'm afraid I can't help here, Francis.

I also assumed there wasn't a J'ouvert morning in Curacao as I've never heard of it, after some research I found it on the website (but without a date). That's why I didn't reply to this thread originally.

I will let you guys know if I hear anything.
