Carnival Road March – April 27
The ultimate parade to complete the carnival season. This is the reason people have been going to Chai studios, gym, socacise, marathons ….. all in the name of fitting into those expensive sexy outfits and having the stamina to be the monster winer. The costumes sponsored this year by: Pure Country, Digicel, Smirnoff, Fame FM, Jamaica Observer and Ammar’s will have the men and women on full display while they enjoy themselves during the Road March.
For the faint pocketed, and those wishing to be less exposed, Bacchanal 2014 has you covered. Pure Country has sponsored two additional outfits to make your carnival march experience just as enjoyable and more comfortable for you if you prefer being more covered up. While Bacchanal Jamaica has a limited edition t-shirt section (no boy shorts etc) available for patrons. Visit Bacchanal Jamaica for more details.
