Before we close this carnival season we would like to once more congratulate and give thanks to many people. First of all we would like to congratulate and give thanks to the 400 participants of Los Laga Bai during this season. You guys are the ones who show off our awesome “ambiente” on the road.

Of course there would be no “ambiente” without Robert Jeand’or & Solo Banda Show. We said it before and we’ll repeat it again….these musicians are the best. In the same breath we also have to thank Bencho Giel for his professional audio set up on the trailer of Robert and making sure the sound is as perfect as it can be on the road during all parades.

Los Laga Bai celebrates this year its 28th carnival participation. All these years would not have been possible if it wasn’t for the financial support of our sponsors. First of all we would like to thank our main sponsor Heineken for believing it us for 15 years. This year was totally dedicated to your loyal support. Thank you. Also we would like to thank Albo, Arubaanse Wegenbouw and A-one Contractors for their continued support during many years and Wema and CMB which have been with us for 2 years and 1 year respectively.

Other sponsors who have contributed to our carnival group are: I.L. Laboratorio Familiar, Texas Furniture Store, Aruba Mufler & Service Center, Plus Accountants, Deloitte, AIB Bank, Bucuti Beach Hotel & Pro Graphics. All these sponsors do not only support us financially but also morally and sometimes with their knowhow. We cannot forget to mention Richard Lynch of 44Graphics for providing Los Laga Bai participants with sun screen during parades.

Every year we have a battalion of volunteers who are willing to help out as bartenders, coordinators, drivers, waitresses, Heineken Girls, registrants, workers on the bar and band trailer, cooks, etc. They help put Los Laga Bai on the road and keep it on the road. To all these persons we would like to extend our deepest gratitude.

Last but not least we would like to thank the security crew to keep us safe on the road, the band (Anthony Dijkhof) and bar (Ramon Bekker) trailer drivers, Robert Nieuw, Rudolf Croes and family, Adolf Croes and any other person or company who we may have forgotten.
