J’Ouvert winding down

Thursday, February 15, 2018

Just like old time calypso, J’Ouvert could also be heading for limbo.

Everything about the low turnout cannot be blamed on security threats.

With so many large scale events for carnival week and with less money to spend, J’Ouvert is just slowly dwindling away.

The beach soca parties give more value for money and cooler fetes have become the order of the day.

Apart from nostalgic visitors from abroad and a few diehards, J’Ouvert is limited.
