Carnival season opening tomorrow with Port Highway jam

THE Port Highway in Tanteen is expected to be converted into a potpourri of Carnival displays when the Spicemas Corporation (SMC) opens the 2014 Carnival season tomorrow, Saturday, May 31, 2014.

It will be the launch of Spicemas 2014 and the SMC will continue to reveal its plans for this year’s Carnival season. A statement from the SMC said that the launch will provide Carnival lovers with a taste of all the exciting events down to the climax in August. The event is scheduled to kick off at 3 p.m. during which the Spicemas Carnival season will be officially declared open.

Several Calypso and Soca artistes are expected to perform during the launch, which will live up to its energised reputation, said the release, which also confirmed that the event will highlight other
aspects of Spicemas including Pan, Fancy Mas, Moko Jumbies, Jab Jab, Vieux Corp, Wild Indian and Shortknee.

The organisers of Spicemas are looking forward to having a much bigger launch than in previous years and are inviting all to come out and enjoy a taste of what’s to come for the Carnival season. The list of activities slated for Spicemas 2014 will be revealed during the launch.

Mr. Alister Bain, Chairman of Spicemas, said: “We are looking forward to a safe, secure and well-organised season with the involvement and participation of everyone, including stakeholders, sponsors, the RGPF, the general public and our visitors.”

The Port Highway is located alongside the Roy St. John playing field and the launch will be happening eight days after the SMC held a motorcade around the island informing and inviting people to attend the launch. The main venue for Carnival celebrations in 2014 will be the Roy St. John playing field in Tanteen because there will be cricket games at the National Cricket Stadium, which over the years has become the venue for main Carnival final activities such as Soca Monarch and Panorama.
