31 Mar NO DC CARNIVAL?
DC CARNIVAL 2011 which would have been scheduled to be June 25th this year,
just MAY not happen. DC CARNIVAL is the carnival that tends to jump start the carnival seasons
because its the first big one in the United States!
From the reports that I have gotten, the carnival committee had their last meeting as recent as LAST NIGHT
and no final decision has been made because plain talk, bad manners THERE IS NO MONEY!!!!!
This recession is kicking the A$$ of everything and everyone! As this was the same problem with
Florida’s major Miami/Broward Carnival remember?
What the committee HAS decided is that if the carnival CAN be salvaged, it may be
1. Scheduled for a later date as they understand that band leaders need time for registrations
and costume making or 2. Include more teeshirt and jouvert-like bands hopes of trying to keep
the carnival at its scheduled date.
Whatever they decide to do, I hope they do it soon as masqueraders on the east coast are getting nervous.
