Montserrat Masquerades to dance in Antigua Carnival Parade

Masqueraders off on the Jaden Sun to join the carnival festivities in Antigua

LITTLE BAY, Montserrat (August 4, 2019) – A contingent of masquerades from the three local groups left on Sunday afternoon for Antigua to participate in carnival festivities there.

The Montserrat Arts Council facilitated the request of the Antigua Carnival Commission to send up to 25 masquerades to participate in the two days of street parades on August 5 and 6.

The Minister of Finance Premier Romeo, who is an avid masquerade supporter, sourced the funds for the trip from his miscellaneous projects funds. Additional funds were contributed by the Tourism Division. The Antigua Government is providing transportation and accommodations for the Montserrat delegation at Hawksbill by Rex Resorts.
