Carnival
Asha Holder
Trinidad & Tobago - Accounting

CARNIVAL…A cultural extravaganza that comes once a year
Born out of a quest for freedom, used as a symbol of rebellion.
It now represents the integration of a people in a harmonious atmosphere.
Months of preparation lead to two days of exhilaration
Carnival is nothing without the sweet ping! pong! ping! of the steel pan.
And just what would it be without a calypso competition?
Trinidad’s carnival is the greatest show on earth and no one can deny it
The product of a cosmopolitan nation, a buildup to an explosive season,
That climaxes in an unforgettable epiphany of beauty and a stunning display of irrepressible human spirit…CARNIVAL.
