Booster Shot: It's Carnival AGAIN! VIncy Mas 2009 Launches today!

>> Saturday, May 2, 2009

Later today St. Vincent and the Grenadines will officially enter Carnival season as Vincy Mas 2009 kicks off!

It's an all day affair.  The action starts at 10 am in Heritage Square with the Vincy Cook-Off, Cultural performances and a Mini Fair. 

Then at 5 pm, party time starts. The opening festivities continue at the Chamber of Commerce Car Park in Kingstown for a measly 5 bucks. 

The New Song Competition is back.  Here are the finalists that will vie for the title of Best New Song:

Calypso :  Candyman, Ron B, Brother Ebony, Mr. Jinny, Tajoe against defending champ, Sulle

Soca : Maddzart, Lady D, Icon, Alla G, Mr. Jinny against defending champ Zoelah

As always, there will be featured performances later in the evening.  The official list hasn't been made public.  But, I have it on good authority that the LIME Soca Dans will be one of the main acts.  (The collective includes Jamesy P, Luta, Fireman Hooper, DJ Tarrus and Tabia)

To all who are in SVG for the launch, please tell us how it goes, and who all performed.  

Happy Carnival!

Love and Soca,
