“Whole year we waiting, and we anticipating…..#WaitingontheStage”
Well the wait was finally over last week and now we wait again for 2018.
Real Vibes & Music
Dubbed The Caribbean’s Greatest Summer Festival, Antigua’s carnival takes place from the last week of July to the first week of August. The first Monday & Tuesday of August are public holidays given so people can go out and celebrate. Historically, Carnival is all about emancipation and celebration but over the years it has become very main stream. Nonetheless this year was our 60th anniversary and we had the traditional queen shows/pageants, music (calypso and soca) shows, panorama, Jouvert and parades.
Leading up to the holiday events there are a wide variety of “pre-carnival” fetes with lots of different themes. However for me, my most anticipated weekend is the one right before the holiday. I shouldn’t even say “weekend” because it technically starts from the Sunday to Tuesday; not sure what happens on Friday/Saturday but ISSA NO.
