St. Joseph village carnival launches this weekend

Shanda Cuffy-Johnson, chairperson of the St. Joseph Carnival Committee

The village of St Joseph will come alive on Saturday as the Carnival Committee there will stage its annual village carnival.

Chairperson of the St. Joseph Carnival Committee, Shanda Cuffy-Johnson, said her community is home to the traditional sensay.

“When persons thought that there would be no carnival in 2018, our carnival came out as early as December…resilient we are with our culture in St. Joseph,” she stated.

She said the opening parade will comprise the Darkies from Good Hope, Nature Island Riders and Afro Culture Stilt Walkers, among other groups.

“We also have the musical part of it and in our effort to continue the culture of Dominica, we have the Mahaut Lapo Kabwit as well as the Gutter Lapo Kabwit,” she said.

Johnson added that contestants from various shows such as Miss Teen, the Mothers Queen Show and the Isaiah Thomas Secondary School (ITSS) Pageant will be present.

    i thought they has agreed to stop all those launchings and focus the funding on the real events. granted they bring a little revenue to the respective communities, but these openings are usually lack lustre and are a waste on the carnival committee’s funds. then again we rolling is oil as cbi paying for everything.
