This year the St Vincent and The Grenadines Carnival, commonly referred to as Vincy Mas, will be hosting its annual Summer Carnival, which runs for 12 days.
The festival, which has been dubbed The Hottest Carnival in The Caribbean, returns to its full spectacle this year from June 30 to July 11.
Marketing and Development Officer at the Carnival Development Corporation (CDC) Esworth ‘Ezzie’ Roberts said there has been an upsurge in interest for the festival.
“This year we are having the festival in its full splendor, unlike in 2022 when we had mass as a showcase and not as a competition. This year we are having everything in full. Last year, while we had Carnival in its full sense, we still did not have participation from all of the carnival lovers because we had persons being cautious of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. We are expecting persons to come out in their large numbers,” he said.
Roberts, who briefly visited Barbados after he attended Trinidad and Tobago Carnival where the members of the CDC were promoting Vincymas as well as the launch of their new QR Code, said patrons of this year’s festival can enjoy all of the festivities the island has to offer.
“We invite persons to come to St Vincent and The Grenadines as Vincymas will have a lot of activities that may make you run out of steam and that is why we call it ‘The Hottest Carnival in The Caribbean’ as it is constant events back-to-back, and Vincentians come out with a lot of energy. Our artiste must also be recognized for their ability to write songs, our producers for producing great songs and we have been blessed with a lot of outstanding artiste coming out of St. Vincent and The Grenadines. The music is a driving force for St. Vincent and The Grenadines, through good music we are able to attract attention to Vincymas,” he said. (Write Right PR Services)
