The Dominica Festivals Committee (DFC) is facing a tough schedule as it plans for two major events in close proximity to each other.
The committee is charged with organizing the 15th World Creole Music Festival to be held in October and the upcoming carnival celebration early next year.
Cultural Advisor Alwin Bully has reiterated that DFC officials are strained with the excess responsibility and has said that this justifies requests for the date of carnival to change.
“Once World Creole Music Festival is over, you just have a few weeks before carnival is on us and the same people who are totally burnt out from World Creole Music Festival have to pull their resources, pull their energy again and try to get things going,” he argued.
Bully said organizers have had to schedule a meeting this month to look at several tasks they must undertake before next carnival.
