America is a country of immigrants who contribute to her growth and greatness. But people in America are proud of their heritage. So while everyone pledges allegiance to the flag and celebrates July 4th with family barbecues and parades, occasions like St. Patrick Day are huge days for the Irish Americans, Oktoberfest is a big day for the German Americans, and the national days of Puerto-Rican and Mexican set their American communities agog.
Americans with Caribbean heritage would find every reason to have a carnival. The same rings true for all other ethnic groups that live in the Americas including those with Latin-American, Chinese, Japanese, Indian and Middle Eastern heritage.
These communities have large media representation in the Americas that report on their activities.
