Why is Govt $$in these shows?

CAN someone explain to me why a show like the Soca Monarch competition that rakes in millions of dollars from ticket sales, television rights and merchandising (DVDs etc) should have major prizes sponsored by the Government? As a matter of fact, this goes for all Carnival events that the public has to pay huge sums to attend.

While the Government is shelling out large sums of money that can be used more productively, the promoters of these events are laughing all the way to the bank.
