Guyana Carnival’s official launch set for Saturday

The official launch of Guyana’s Independence Carnival is billed for this Saturday evening in the parking lot of Marriott Hotel, Kingston, Georgetown.
The gates will be open from 20:00h, and the event will feature some of the exquisite costumes that will be on the road in May 2018.
At the launch, information will be readily available on how companies and individuals can be a part of the parade as well as the week of events leading up to the grand festival.
The official website for Guyana Carnival will also be launched on the same night.
Guyana Carnival is expected to mirror those seen in other Caribbean islands, which are known for their energetic and dynamic showcase of culture and entertainment.
Carnival in the Caribbean features revellers in elaborate costumes gyrating through the streets to the sounds of sweet soca music, booming through the speakers of various music systems.
Carnival Guyana 2018, which is themed “Genesis”, will target partyholics in the Diaspora and around the world, providing them with world-class events such as all-inclusive parties, concerts, boat rides, day tours and a grand costume day parade through the streets of Georgetown.
The all-inclusive packages will include hotel accommodation, admission tickets, costume, food, drinks and day tours to the country’s most fascinating tourist sites.
Several fashion icons have already started getting their bands ready and will undoubtedly give a glimpse of what Guyana Carnival is all about on Saturday evening.
After examining the various bands, revellers will have a choice to get registered and benefit from an all-inclusive, international standard road experience.
Patrons will receive a costume, goodie bag, lunch, snacks, free premium drinks and security all day while masquerading through the streets to some of the most versatile and renowned DJs. For more information about the evening, persons can contact the organisers at
