saint lucia has the best Carnival in the world with the best soca artists...keep it up...I love my country...big up all lucians...mad again on the road for Carnival Monday and Tuesday and Labour Day....!!!!
Hey I love soca music. Will be checking out St Lucia Carnival for the first time this year. Can anyone recommend any good sites or places I need to check out to make sure that I dont miss out on all the big fetes ???
When is something going to be done about entry into Mindoo Phillip Park - there is one entrance for the general public?
How can I and everyone that I spoke with before the Groovy Soca competition anticipate that the location would be too small to handle the crowd on Wednesday night and the organizers not anticipate this issue?
When will the sound issue be handled? This is happening too often this carnival season.
it was a blast on Monday 21 july with spanish Vibes from the Dominican republic doing their thing in St lucia Carnival 2K Great. The band was small but really exposed their country with the Colors of the Flag of the DOMINICAN REPUBLIC. Leader of the Band MR michael Gustave of St lucia which is married to a young lady of Santo domingo carried a King Costume with the colors of the flag Red ....blood and Fire Blue....Liberty White...God
everyone enjoyed themself and hope that next year the band will include locals...
Most active consideration ought to be given to the establishment of a national carnival management/oversight institution, as an agency of the Cultural Development Foundation (CDF), and subsumed under which are a number of subcommittees directly responsible for the various facets of carnival. That carnival management entity becomes then the nucleus around which around which all national carnival activity revolves. By extension, this will reduce the need for the various associations which often find themselves competing for the limited carnival enhancement resources available.
The upshot of this will be a more centralised and efficient approach to the organisation and administration of this cultural exposee.
