Time to move your body to the sweet music. If you don’t have a costume or didn’t book one, come early to pick from what’s left and get face painted! All ages welcome to join the parade; It’s a family affair. The boy and girl who show the most carnival spirit take home a trophy.(Top Male and Female Reveller) And so does the Top Mas Family. Avoid the rush for a costume. Bring your own or borrow one of ours. Three days of mas camp are offered to help you prepare for the parade in the park.
