PHILIPSBURG, St. Maarten – An important Grand Carnival Parade meeting will be held on Thursday, April 2 at 7:00pm at the Government Administration Building in Philipsburg.
The St. Maarten Carnival Development Foundation (SCDF) is inviting all troupe leaders, corporate entities and others who plan to be part of the parade to attend this meeting.
President of the SCDF Mike Granger explained that the foundation is “hearing” about groups and others that are planning on being part of the parade, but these groups has not yet contacted the foundation.
“Sometimes folks are of the impression that they can just show up and be in the parade. It doesn’t work that way. You have to be registered with us and fully aware of all rules and regulations.
So we urge everyone interested in being part of the parade to attend the meeting on Thursday evening,” he said.
