CARRIACOU LAUNCHES CARNIVAL 2015
Hillsborough – On Thanksgiving Day, the Carriacou & Petite Martinique Carnival Development Committee (CPMCDC) launched the 2015 edition of Carriacou Carnival on October 25, at the Esplanade in Hillsborough. The theme for next year's event will be "Celebrating the legacy of Shakespeare and embracing the splendor of our traditional mas."
Shakespeare Mas is a novel attraction where Masqueraders have a lyrical competition on poetic recitals from the plays and sonnets of William Shakespeare.
Carriacou's Carnival takes place during the pre-Lenten season, culminating on the Monday and Tuesday before Ash Wednesday. Next year's event features calypso, Soca, and steel pan competitions, Carnival Queen Pageant, and street parades from the 25 January to 17 February 2015.
The Grenada Tourism Authority, through its office in Carriacou supports the CPMCDC and markets the carnival.
