Booster Shot: Vincy Mas, unofficial fete and lime schedule

>> Wednesday, June 17, 2009

Vincy on my mind! You have no idea how excited I am to be heading back to SVG next Friday. Big plans to see family, friends and CARNIVAL! So as I plan out where to go and what to do, I thought it best to share the info. Believe me, I know what it's like to try and plan a trip overseas without the inside scoop on the hottest events. It sucks! You reach, and find out about everything one day late. So here's the plan.(Keep pace) I will be posting events that are happening when the bulk of the tourists will be dotting the island, July 26th to July 7th. This list will include official and unofficial events. I'll add info as I get it. Deal?

So, if you're reading this because you're planning your trip. Enjoy! Be safe and have a great time. If you're a Vincentian, and you're sitting at a desk covered in party flyers...spread the wealth. Leave your "2-Cents" below and lemme know wey goin' on!
