And The Dedicated Carnival Baby Award Goes Too......

There is going to come a time when this story is told as a Carnival Urban Legend; "did you hear about the girl who played mas with a break foot, in a cast and was wining on one crutch in the band?"

Of course the real story does not involve a cast or crutch but it did involve a broken foot and a very dedicated masquerader! The story as told to me goes like this; early Carnival Monday morning while trying to retrieve her costume from a top shelf this masquerader landed badly and ultimately broke her foot as seen in the X Ray below:

actual pic of actual  x ray of actual broken foot!

No, that X Ray was not taken on Carnival Monday OR Tuesday but after Carnival . After our masquerader unparalleled palanced ALL day Carnival Monday and Tuesday with NO CAST on that broken foot! And no, she was not wearing slippers, she wore BOOTS too!

So today we salute you, anonymous Threads of Morocco masquerader, for your embodiment of the Carnival Baby Spirit. We salute your unfailing dedication to your mas. We salute Mr Johnny Walker for being your friend and support. And most of all we salute the fact that you represented your fellow B.A.B.E.S (costume was always on point!) even if you did it in pain!
