DC CARNIVAL IS IN THE AIR!!!!
DC Carnival is upon us – just 2 days away. You can just image how busy everyone is…preparing for this annual event. The Carnival organizers are taking care of all the final preparations and plans for the parade and the festival site, and making sure everything is in place to accommodate the massive amounts of people who will line Georgia Avenue for the parade. The Bandleaders are busy in their “mas camps” preparing costumes for last minute masqueraders/participants, and putting final touches on costumes, and their individual pieces, along with their king and queen costumes. The promoters are refilling the outlets with their flyers and tickets for their events taking place in town this weekend. Club owners are basically cleaning out their safes making way for all the Carnival cash that will be definitely “rolling” in this weekend. Yes, it’s real exciting in this area and will be for the next 3 days.
Check In – Hit us back and let us know if you are coming to DC Carnival
and what city you are from email@example.com.
would like to congratulate Simone Carr for placing first (1st)
in the Queen Competition that took place last Sunday at the DiManche Gras
Carr is the queen for our “Sweetheart” section, and a queen she
certainly is. Once you see
beautiful Ms. Carr and her beautiful costume, designed by Jackie
Cumberbatch (Jackie and Associates) you will see why she won.
She surly reflected a “Sweetheart”, and most importantly the
costume itself certainly depicted a heart in its red splendor!
Check it out on the road on Saturday, and let us know your
is your last chance to join Arious Entertainment, Ice Entertainment and
Jackie & Associates for 2005 DC Caribbean Carnival. Our section is sold out, but you can still join us, because
we think Jackie and Associates has a few costumes left in a few of his
other beautiful sections. Contact
Jackie or Janet at 301-565-9037.
