Tuesday, July 7, 2009  The spotlight will be on young carnival revellers on Sunday when the Cultural Development Foundation holds the annual Junior Carnival.


Eight junior carnival bands will participate in the  kiddies street parade which begins at the Vigie Sports Complex and culminates at the Mindoo Philip Park.


Extreme Kiddies will feature nine sections with a potrayal "The sky is the limit:When I grow up, the future leaders of Saint Lucia". Just Us Kids will potray "Pirate finding lost Treasures" with eight sections.


XS Energy will highlight "Gems of the Motherland" with five sections. Dynamic Kids in  collaboration with Mas Action will feature nine sections with a potrayal of "The Market Place".


St. Lucian Spirit will potray "Jambo Africa, Hello Africa" with one section. La Mosaique will potray "Storytime" with four sections and Charmalion will feature four sections with a potrayal of "Tie Dye Fantasy".


Executive Director of the Cultural Development Foundation (CDF), Kennedy Samuel is urging the public to come out and support the future of Saint Lucia carnival.


“On Sunday, our first straight carnival activity—the junior carnival—will take place at the Mindoo Philip Park from about 1 p.m.

"We are planing to include some calypso and soca performances so if that works out we may have to start a bit earlier—around midday. The juniors have not been given much attention in past years but this year we hope they are going to put on a great show with the full support of the community.”


Also on Sunday, eight carnival queen contestants will compete for the prestigious national carnival queen tittle from 6 p.m. at Saamans Park.


Samuel says the carnival queen show continues to be a major highlight  on the annual calender of activities for carnival.


The eight carnival queen contestants are Oneka McKoy of Babonneau, Velma Soody of Soufriere, Leona Sandiford of Dennery, Cortney John-Soufriere, Iva Satney-Gros Islet, Alisha Hunte-Castries, Lasha William-Marchand and Patrish Lionel of Anse La Raye.
