It was fun galore in Micoud yesterday when the community continued its carnival activities with the parade of the bands which will culminate this evening (Monday).
Five bands, which comprised of revelers of all sizes and shapes, took part in the event which created quite a spectacle.
Revelers had a rollicking time, braving the sweltering heat, jamming to the pulsating music of some of the most popular music by local artists.
Catchy refrains such as: “I en knock it yet…but I suck it already,” “You bad in bam bam” and “I want to put you on your back…” had revelers, especially the females, gyrating without moderation, behaving like there was no tomorrow.
They were also treated to the sweet sound of steel band music.
Last Saturday, the community held a Carnival Jump Up, followed by a j’ouvert, which was a blast.
The previous week-end it was the queen show, which was truly a sight to behold. Five beautiful young ladies in the community belted out their artistic ability in a competition which was keenly contested.
At the end it was Kiana Louisy, who reigned supreme, sponsored by Brice and Company, followed by Dahlia Jn. Baptiste (second), sponsored by Bounty Rum and Sylve Charlemagne (third) sponsored by Micoud Sounds Systems.
In an interview with St. Lucia News Online, Benda Paul, chairperson of the Micoud Carnival Committee, said the committee is very satisfied with the outcome of the events held so far.
“The events have been very successful so far… In terms of community support, residents came out in very large numbers to support the various events,” Paul said.
She added that the event has grown by leaps and bounds over the years.
Paul said the community is hoping to improve on the carnival costumes next year by making it much more attractive.
