IN PICTURES: Tewey Vaval

Vaval’s coffin is burnt

Carnival 2019 ended with the traditional, symbolic Tewey Vaval ceremony which was held in the Kalinago Territory on Wednesday.

The event included the parade of a fake coffin containing “Vaval” to the beating of drums.

At the end of the parade, a bonfire was lit and the coffin burnt in it, marking the end of Carnival.
