UWI students still to play mas
CARNIVAL AT THE University of the West Indies (UWI) has been called off, but students will still be playing mas.
Powerx4, which had offered to produce the annual Carnival at a significantly lower cost, has taken up the mantle and 1 500 revelers are expected to be on the road on April 7 for the new Joukanal Carnival.
Managing director Chetwin Stewart said the bands that would have played mas with UWI previously are still on board and that 16 bands have already registered. Bands will parade from the Party Stand along Spring Garden Highway to the roundabout at the bottom of University Hill and back. (YB)
