Weekend entertainment along busy Ariapita Avenue in Woodbrook got off to an explosive start last Friday when Carvalho Mas hosted one rollicking C2K9 launch.
Held at the Carvalhos’ landmark Alaska Bar, the evening’s fare included the modelling of costumes by a bevy of exotic beauties, a delicious creole dinner, live entertainment by Brimblers Steelband and good company.
After much success in producing mas bands, the Carvalho family, led by Glenn and his wife Charmaine, migrated to the United States, taking a hiatus from local competition.
Carvalho Mas is a welcome return to the Carnival landscape, and next year’s portrayal The Journey Begins, includes nine sections enticingly named Friendship, Passion, Euphoria, Peace, Love, Twilight Zone, Sky, Earth, and Dark Side.
Notably absent on Friday were veteran masman Glenn Carvalho and popular King of Carnival competitor Fareid Carvalho, both being out of the country. However, Elizabeth Carvalho was more than up to the task as an outstanding host.
The mas camp for Carvalho Mas is located at Alsaka Bar at 73 Ariapita Avenue and will be open to the public on Monday December 8. Costumes have been quoted at a price of under $2500.00, I was informed.
