|All abroad! Join Barney and his friends as they take a magical train ride on Barney's Imagination Unlimited and, through music and dance explore the different types of celebrations around the world. Ben and Tracy can't agree on what kind of party to have so they join Barney, BJ, Baby Bop and Riff for a whirl-wind trip to see celebrations in five countries. In Rio de Janeiro they learn the samba and make music shakers and drums out of everyday objects to celebrate Carnivale. Follow along with the toe-taping dancers doing "The Reel," an Irish step dance, which encourages kids to try new things like new dances and emphasizes taking turns. Then hop aboard to celebrate the Cherry Blossom Festival in Japan filled with games, music, food and colorful kites. Learn about different names in the delightful "What's Your Name?" song and the importance of friendship. Say "soyonara" and travel to Kenya in Africa for big music festival. Feel the beat of the drums and sing and clap along with Cousin Riff who plays a drum called "juma," and joins the travelers watching the colorful dancers. Then it's off to India for "Diwali," the Festival of Lights where native Indian children explain the meaning of the festival, which chases away the darkness. Everyone joins in for a rousing rendition of "If You Are Happy and You Know It," and celebrates with food, music, dancing and fireworks!|
Back at the party, Ben and Tracy agree that even though celebrations are different all over the world the most important thing we all have in common is friendship. They both decide to have a party to celebrate being friends and all join in for "Look on the Inside."
Editor's NoteBarney and his friends go beyond the boundaries of the park and the classroom with this trip that takes the troupe across the globe. CELEBRATING AROUND THE WORLD travels to Brazil, India, Ireland, Japan, and Kenya, and the journey teaches kids about various holidays in these countries.
