With Notting Hill Carnival 2020 taken off the road, what are your plans for the Bank Holiday weekend? And what will you miss the most?
As a masquerader, my spirit is restless and meh foot hot. Ah have real tabanca. The spirit of carnival is missing this year, and my heartaches. The freedom of owning the road, dancing in the streets to the sweet sounds of soca on the music trucks, drinking rum and winin’ wit meh family, friends and dem whole day, unity and community spirit…
People of all nationalities coming together to enjoy the Caribbean island experience of fabulous costumes, steelbands, reggae and house sound systems, food and drinks.
I know there will be many private parties taking place this Bank Holiday weekend, and I will definitely be looking to party somewhere. As the song goes, “Once ah Trini reach in de fete is niceness”.
