The most expected festival in Jamaica, across all island cities, is the festival which celebrates Bob Marley’s birthday on 6th of February.

On February another important event is held on Negril. To be more precisely, I am talking about the Flat Tyre Festival. This event gathers the mountain bikers and keeps them ready for a top bike race during the day, while the night brings into the scenario music, drinks, nice girls, in only one word: PARTY. If you are not a biker for sure you can join only the party or you can be only a spectator at the race.
