I am back with your third listing of "Budget Friendly Fetes".

Congratulations to our Agua Soca Sweepstakes winner!!

The winner of Trinidad Carnival Diary's Agua Soca Sweepstakes is :

Shelana Richardson

Congratulations! You have won TWO tickets to Agua Soca on Jaunary 29, at Prive.

Winner selected by

Image Nation's Website Is Up!

Image Nation has finally updated their website with costumes from "The Dry Yard", their Carnival 2011 presentation. There are 11 sections though only the female options are shown on the website, prices max out at $2595.00 and that includes the All Inclusive package, see the website for more details.

Image Nation will also be producing a Children's Band this year and I have to say I am really liking the sketches from Dragon Trail. The costumes look vibrant and cute, in drawings, and I hope the final product does it justice. Definitely worth a look; the children's costumes can also be seen on the website.
