St Kitts and Nevis National Carnival Committee (SKNNCC) shared an update on their social media regarding the various aspects of the Junior Carnival Parade. Hundreds of St Kitts and Nevis children will parade through the streets of Basseterre on Saturday, December 31, 2022, as a part of the 𝐒𝐔𝐆𝐀𝐑 𝐌𝐀𝐒 𝟓𝟏 𝐂𝐀𝐑𝐈𝐁𝐁𝐄𝐀𝐍 𝐆𝐀𝐋𝐀𝐗𝐘 𝐉𝐔𝐍𝐈𝐎𝐑 𝐂𝐀𝐑𝐍𝐈𝐕𝐀𝐋 𝐏𝐀𝐑𝐀𝐃𝐄.
The junior Carnival Parade will have various events, including Majorettes, Carnival Winners, Junior Folklore, Bold Carnival’s inaugural presentation of First Class Mas and the SKNNCC’s Beauty & The Beast.
The Junior Carnival is an annual practice in several Caribbean nations. Under the Junior Carnival, children can enjoy a day of fun with their parents and guardians. At the same time, they can learn more about Caribbean Culture and festivities in a safe and fun environment.
This practice is becoming increasingly popular in other parts of the world, where Caribbean communities reside in large numbers.
