Organisers promise bigger, better Carnival

 CHAGUANAS launched its Regional Carnival celebrations yesterday at Edinburgh 500 during which organisers promised that it would be even bigger and better than last year.

Caroni Central MP Dr Glenn Ramadharsingh beamed with pride when speaking to reporters yesterday about Carnival celebrations in his constituency.

“This area is highly engaged in Carnival as there tends to be lots of participation and motivation for the youth to support this venture,” he said.

He said in central Trinidad there was a better sense of history when it came to mas, adding that over the years the celebration had grown now to include a chutney show and its very own Panorama.

Chairman of the National Carnival Commission Allison Demas was also on hand at yesterday’s launch.

She said, “The launch of the Regional Carnivals are a very important aspect of our Carnival and out of the 53 Regional Carnival celebrations, in central Trinidad the main feature tends to be the traditional characters.”

Chaguanas lives in the centre of Trinidad and Tobago and we want to decentralise the focus from Port of Spain.” See Page 17
