The Roseau
Carnival street parades on Monday 11th & Tuesday 12th February
2013 were most enjoyable. The colourful array of costumes were a sight to behold
and the stilt walkers seem to get taller by the year. The queen (Miss Dominica)
contestants were amazing, steel pan band exceptional and this years calypso songs
were vibrant and uplifting. We took a little video of the Tuesday parades which
we hope you will share with us and enjoy.

The month of February is a busy and enjoyable time in Dominica during the build up to Carnival
with such events as the Calypso Tents where contestants entertain the crowds whilst selecting 
the finalists for the Calypso King competition held at the Roseau Stadium. Another big event is 
the Carnival Queen contest, along with Carnival Princess, Teenage Pageant etc. You will see 
partying and street jump-ups throughout the month all over the island, leading up to the Roseau 
Carnival street parades, which in 2011 fell on Monday 7th & Tuesday 8th March.

hilst the main event is happening in our tiny capital, many of the villages around the island are 
enjoying their own Carnival celebrations. In 2009 we featured one of these instead - 
at the west coast village of Salisbury.
