“Statia is indeed a small island with big thrills. Carnival is growing. This is the fourth consecutive year since our establishment that the St. Eustatius Arts and Cultural Heritage Foundation has been organizing Carnival. Each year we explain the importance of becoming a Carnival sponsor towards government and potential sponsors on the island and overseas. We will continue pushing this cultural event,” said Lopes.
