The opening parade and show for Mas Domnk 2011 kicks off at 3: 00 p.m. from Victoria Street and will move along the Roseau Bayfront right through to Carnival City for a programme of activities.
The streets of Roseau will be transformed into a huge carnival atmosphere with the participants and masqueraders parading a mix of carnival forms and moving along the streets to the music of lapo kabwit, steel band, live music and sound systems.
The parade will highlight a range of advertising floats, costume bands, traditional masquerade groups, and the color and splendor of Dominica’s carnival.
