WHAT'S HAPPENING

Greetings To all, my on-line family:

  Thanks to all of you for the many positive responses and suggestions regarding this years’ DC Caribbean Carnival.  We are very glad to know that most of you enjoyed it and felt it was the best DC Carnival.   We’ll be sure to pass all your suggestions on to the DC Carnival Committee.  I must say many agreed with me regarding the small $5.00 fee, all that wrote back stated they had no problem paying the fee, and they absolutely understood that it was implemented to offset the cost of the entire event.  However, most stated there should have been more admission booths set up, and most importantly along the parade route (along Georgia Avenue), and not just at the entrance of “De Savannah”.  Thanks again for all your responses!!!!!

Last weekend was yet another Carnival in this area.  It was the 1st Annual Prince George’s County, Maryland Cultural Heritage Festival/Carnival.  Well, what can I say about this Carnival?  Hum…only that maybe next year will be a better year for the organizers and the actual event!  I’m really sorry to sound like a “hater”, but many will agree with me that this was not at all as we expected.  The main problem being marketing, which was not done adequately at all, in my opinion it was a “well kept secret”.   Additionally, the parade left much to be desired, even though I absolutely commend the few DC Carnival Mas bands that were a part of the parade. However, from talks among folks, they/we all expected to get a glimpse of all cultures in the parade (Hispanic, Haitian, Jamaican, Trinidadian, Chinese, etc.) all we got was a lot of Politicians, and of course (as I mentioned above) about 4 Mas Bands (Trinidad).  The location was great, but (this year) extremely too huge for the few people that came out to this Carnival/Festival.  The performances that was lined up was good too, but again, there were very little people in attendance to enjoy the music and food.  I know the vendors must have suffered.  Anyway, maybe next year the organizers will realize that MARKETING of this event is the KEY FACTOR.  If any among my on-line family attended, please let me know your thoughts about this event, my e-mail address is todd@ariousentertainment.com. 

For the first time, this past Saturday Susan (my wife) and I attended the Trinidad and Tobago All Star Soccer Tournament.  This was really a nice, relaxing event.  All the “who’s who”, and then some, in our area came out to lime and check out the tournament, it was like a Caribbean day in the park.  There were lots of food in abundance, lots of flowing drinks and good “old talk” (as my wife would say) It was really nice liming, vibing and talking with folks from the Trinidadian Community.  By the way the winner of the tournament was Team United from DC, congratulations to them for winning this tournament! 

Can’t wait for the upcoming tournaments, the first one will take place next week.  It is the “Crimson Sports Club Annual Caribbean/Latin/African/American Soccer Tournament” being held next Saturday, July 24th from 8am to 11pm, at the Fairland Regional Park in Briggs Chaney, Maryland.  This should be another nice family event.  There will be teams competing from MD, DC, VA, NY, PA, & NC.  See my ad below for more details.  Additionally, look out for the West Indian National Association “24th Annual Trinidad and Tobago Round Robin Soccer Tournament”, being held on Saturday, August 24th at Lake Clifton Park, Baltimore, Maryland.  See the ad below for more details.  These events are always nice, so come out and bring the family and support our local soccer teams.

Well, the Carnival season is heating up in Baltimore, on Saturday June 23rd-25th, is “The Caribbean/American Association of Baltimore” 2004 Baltimore Carnival.  The event is 3 (three) days long, and it kicks off on Friday, June 23rd with the King, Queen and Individual Costume Competition in Druid Hill Park featuring entertainment by The Panama Band, plus food, arts and crafts, steel bands, stilt dancers and limbo.  On Saturday, it’s the costume street parade on Park Heights Avenue starting at 12 Noon, followed by performances in Druid Hill Park by Crystal Paul and more, don’t forget the foods and arts and crafts will be located in the Park as well.  On Sunday is the last day, “The Carnival Explosion” featuring Traffic, Rikki Jai, Sexy Arlene and the Angel’s band, plus lots of local talent, all at Druid Hill Park.  Admission is $8.00 each day.  For more information, log on to www.bcacarnival.com. 

In September, CCBC presents “The Original Baltimore Caribbean Carnival 2K4”, from September 16th through the 19th.  Log on to their site for more information at www.baltimorecarnival.com.

Look out for the Baltimore’s Trinidad and Tobago Association “Days in the Park”.  This is schedule to take place in early August.  Stay tuned for more details!

Have a wonderful weekend!
