MAS is alive and well in San Fernando.
That was the response from San Fernando Mayor Junia Regrello following the parade of the bands on the streets for Carnival Monday and Tuesday.
Regrello said that although southerners may have been disappointed with the cancellation of the south Dimanche Gras last week, they would have been more than pleased with the street parades showcasing the culture, talents and hard work of the band leaders.
Fifteen bands were expected to cross the stage at Harris Promenade yesterday, and by 4 p.m. hundreds of revellers from at least four bands had pranced and danced before the judges.
