Hi everyone,

I ask a lady yesterday why the business were close and they told me it was because its the Grand Parade for the carnival but I on the carnival website it says today April the 30 for the Grand Parade.

So my question I just wich to confirm if its today or it was yesterday the Grand Parade?

Thank you.

the grand parade is today. it will start around 10 AM outside of town and end probably around 4 PM at the entrance to the village.
Yesterday was Jouvert morning, another early morning parade with bands and people but not in carnival costume.

Tomorrow is a holiday too.. It is International Labour day and there will be another parade.
