Queen Contestants for Carnival 97, and More
Carnival is a week of local celebrations from July 28 to
August 11 (the schedule), when
many overseas Angullians come home to see family and party.
If you want to partake of it, find a local to explain things and remember that any event which involves young women dressing up will start at least one hour late. Here is a web page with some pictures of Carnival.
|Update: The Anguilla Local News has a special photo report on Carnival 1997.|
|Update: Winner for Carnival 1997 was Karen Ross.|
|Update: Mighty Splinter Wins Again in 1997.|
There will be two competitions this year:
the first Leeward Islands Calpyso competition and
the Anguillian Calypso Monarch Competition.
As a warm up for the competing monarchs,
the organizers are hoping to test them with a
randomly selected tune, to which they will have to
create a song based on a topic drawn just before the performance.
Revised: July 14, 1998
