All mas camps are already open for the major Carnival troupes in preparation for Carnival 2017.
PHILIPSBURG–All Junior and Grand Parade troupe leaders and others involved in Carnival parades are invited to a very important meeting at St. Maarten Carnival Development Foundation (SCDF) office above the WIB branch on A.Th. Illidge Road at 7:00pm this Tuesday.
SCDF is ready to relay information to the troupe leaders to ensure that all are on the same page for Carnival 2017. The foundation also has to hear from and register all troupes that intend to participate in the parades.
Companies and persons who want to participate in the parade as individuals also are invited to this meeting.
“This meeting is not just to relay our rules and regulations, but also those of the Police Force and other officials,” SCDF said. “Something happens on the road during parades every year, which makes these meetings absolutely necessary. Everyone associated with the parades is invited to this meeting. Let’s make sure we are all on the same page and have a wonderful parade.”
