Fantastic return to Vincymas 2022

Today, Friday, June 24 marks the official start of Vincy Mas 2022, and Chairman of the Carnival Development Corporation (CDC), Ricky Adams, said the mood is set for what is expected to be a “fantastic” season.

Speaking with the Agency for Public Information on Thursday, Adams said all the components of Vincy Mas are ready and with mas tents having even more demand than initially anticipated.

“We are seeing a lot of energy, people lining behind their soca artistes, pan has taken a decision this year to do all local arrangers…I have been hearing from the mas bands that now some of them are beginning to be under pressure…”Adams said.

It is estimated that in excess of 150 private events outside of the CDC’s will take place during the carnival season and while COVID- 19 numbers are under control, Adams is still appealing to the public that “if you think that you’re in an environment that makes you susceptible to any kind of infection…do the common-sense thing to protect yourself”.

Vincy Mas 2022 runs from June 24 to July 5.
