2016-02-20-thank-you-noteOnce again it has been a great carnival season. Carnival 62 was definitely a short and also a somewhat controversial carnival year. There were a lot of criticism about the changed route (starting at Wendy’s boulevard instead of Dakota), the participation enthusiasm of many groups and of course the last minute cancellation of the biggest music festival on the island: Soca & Caiso Contest.

For us however, it was mostly business as usual. We sold out again in three registration days with a total number of 440 participants. Our participants had fun and the carnival public enjoyed when we were passing by in front of them. So we don’t have much to complain about. In fact we want to take this time to thank many people who made all this possible.
