PHILIPSBURG:— The St. Maarten Carnival Development Foundation (SCDF) over the weekend stressed to persons registered for a season pass and booth holders who have been allotted a booth, that March 1 is their deadline to pay all fees.
Booth holders and season pass registrants each had five months to pay the fees, with installments as an option. The SCDF said that should they fail to pay all fees by March 1, they will lose the opportunity to operate a booth and obtain a season pass for the Carnival 2017 season.
“There is a reason we open and close registration at least six months prior to Carnival. This gives registrants enough time to make payments and to do so in installments to make it less of a financial burden. But we simply cannot extend deadlines past March 1 with carnival a few weeks later. We urge everyone to adhere to the deadline to avoid any unfortunate circumstances,” the SCDF said.
