of colours, encouraged by a huge crowd of on-lookers.
Carnival Princess Show February 1st 2015
The Stardom Calypso Tent Every Wednesday from January 14th 2015
Commonly called "Stardom," this event is held every Wednesday
before Carnival at the Krazy Koconuts in Castle Comfort. It is a Calypso Show
Series by which, through a method of elimination that lasts for
weeks, the Calypsonians to participate in the Calypso Monarch Competition
are chosen. The serious calypso commentary and mix of humour and
local scandal makes the tent a favorite among locals.
Showdown Mas Camp Every Friday from January 16th 2015
Showdown Mas Camp is another Calypso tent. Showdown Calypsonians perform on Friday nights before Carnival at Harlem Plaza, Newtown.Their 'Champ of the Camp' Competition is held the Thursday night before Carnival Monday.
February 8th 2015
Lagoon Street Jam
This one is a definite favorite. It's another pre-taste for the
real thing: Calypso, Bouyon Music, lots of people and Kubuli would
accurately describe this jam. Like the other activities, this is
open to everyone because Carnival in Dominica is a time when all
differences are put aside.
