Carnival 2023 in Dominica was beyond fantastic. Thank you to all the hard-working men and women behind the scenes. Thank you to all the patrons who came out to participate. Special thanks to the sponsors #FlowDominica #FineFoodsInc #vibesradio #PetroCaribe. It was an event free of violence or incidents, for which the government is grateful.
The visitors surely made a royal mess in the CrazyMess t-shirt band with our water blasters, paint, foam and water truck. Don’t miss out again on this epic experience with the Bouyon King Amnesia Carnival Dominica Asa Bantan in the ultimate wet fete on the road.
Crazymess t-shirt band was another fun event despite the hiccups of 3 burnt generators back to back. But with Amnesia, nobody can stop Bouyon.…we quickly switched to a brand new truck and sound system in minutes. Special thanks to our patrons for your understanding.
