Carnival Centre Coming.... sounds like de ja vu!

Now that the 480 million dollar Cultural Centre is completed, mere weeks before the opening of the Caricom Heads of Government Meeting, Prime Minister Patrick Manning has announced that the Carnival Center is next to be built according to the Trinidad Guardian:

Interesting to note that no construction start date or estimate of when completion is expected was given by Mr Manning. Fool us once Mr Manning, I am not falling for being fooled twice!

Antilia Carnival 2009 Video and Travel Package

I wish there were more shots of the costumes in this video of Antilia Carnival, which took place on November 5th. There is also a pictorial review on Uptown Life that incorrectly states all the costumes featured are from TRIBE. Please note that only Spice and Island People's costumes were on show.

*Video Removed On Request* 

Interestingly, Antilia Carnival is also offering a Travel Package for Trinidad Carnival 2010, more information can be found on their website. The package offers costumes in Spice (Thailand and Isis only) or Island People (Jaipur, Chutney Bhaav and Priyadarshini). The package also includes hotel, airfare (if needed), jouvert costume and fete tickets; you would have to do the maths yourself to calculate the savings if going with the package, versus booking everything on your own!
