    Exclamation Antigua Carnival '06

    I'm so disappointed that I cannot make it this year....But I have a quick question...

    Is this year the 50th anniversary or next year? My brother is saying this year and a few articles online said that too, but carnival in Antigua started in 1957, making 50 years in 2007....and several articles state that it is next year also. Me so confused...someone clarify this please.

    Thanks.

    @xxdyme: well i think they realized that if you count the first carnival in 1957 this years would be the actual 50th carnival festival. However, seeing as there has been no mention of the 50th in this years carnvial promotions...leads me to believe they will do the actual celebration next year during the 51st carnival to take place on the island.

    Ok..so why would the celebration of the actual annual"event" be a year later..so lemme guess naygah duz celebrated dem 50th wedding anniversary ah year late anall nuh...*sigh* The CDC is just choosing to do the the celebration next year is all. They probably realized too late that it should've been done for 2K6 so would rather it be done for the 51st carnival.
