Lilly's class learns about a carnival in the Bahamas and plans their own version called the Hullabaloo. The much-teased Kendell brings Caribbean music from a mystery friend, who no one is sure really exists. The class works secretly on their costumes, as well as together, to make the event a success. During the parade, Lilly tries to recognize her classmates and is left wondering if Kendall's friend is real and snuck in, disguised.
