Vincy Mas to return after a two-year hiatus

Searchlight

Saint Vincent and The Grenadines, W.I. - The Carnival Development Corporation (CDC) is putting plans in place for the return of the cultural festival, Vincy Mas after a two year hiatus. 

However, the country’s vaccination rate by the end the first quarter will be a determining factor for how grand Vincy Mas 2022 will be.

“It was decided clearly that we would have carnival this year,” Prime Minister Dr Ralph Gonsalves [pictured] said as he made the announcement on WEFM’s ‘Issue at Hand’ programme on Sunday. 

Gonsalves said there was a two-hour discussion on the return of the festival at last Wednesday’s Cabinet meeting where the leadership of the CDC made a presentation “as to whether we should have a carnival this year…or what type of carnival we should have”. 

The festival was cancelled for the past two years as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
