An opening parade on January 28 at Pottersville is expected to jump-start this year’s Carnival celebrations.
Events Director of the Dominica Festivals Committee Natalie Clarke-Meade told a press conference yesterday that the original plan was to have the event hosted at the Windsor Park Stadium car park but a “very exciting partnership” with the calypso association has created a new venue at the Pottersville Savannah, “which DFC would not have been able to afford if we had gone about doing it on our own.”
Clarke-Meade also informed that the calypso quarter finals show is carded for January 28 at the Newtown Savannah though there is the possibility that it may be hosted on the Pottersville Savannah.
