Each year many schools take part in the Carnival day procession through the streets of St Pauls. The school groups go through various extents and levels to prepare – from hiring the services of a dance artist to creating imaginative costumes – participation has always been a part of the Carnival tradition. As well as school groups there are also a number of youth led and community groups that are emerging as ‘Mas Bands’ – music and dance groups that go ‘on the road’ at Carnival. Without theses elements the Carnival just couldn’t be Carnival and we wish to thank all the schools and groups that have registered to get involved and who have started rehearsals.
