Caribana is back on Barbuda, after years of waiting since the ravages of the hurricane and covid.
It will feature a ‘Little Mr and Miss Barbuda’ pageant that will take place on June 3rd and a fishing tournament in honour of Barbudan fisher – Johnny DeSouza – will be on the 4th.
Chairperson of the Tourism and Culture Committee Calsey Beazer-Joseph confirmed that Caribana will be hosted this year by the Barbuda Council. She said, “The committee comprises of Barbudans who have put the plans together for Caribana this year. One of the main events, the horse race, will be held on the 5th, followed by a Calypso Melting Pot later that evening. We will move right into the J’ouvert in the morning with a food fair starting at 11.30am on June 6,” Beazer added.
Those who can’t attend should be able to watch all the action on the Barbuda Channel.
