St. Maarten to Celebrates 41st Carnival in April, May

March 18, 2010 By: Joe Pike

St. Maarten will offer added excitement for locals and visitors during its 41st Annual Carnival with 18 days and nights filled with culture, celebration, concerts and activities from April 15 - May 2. This year's theme, "Sweet Revelry Again for Carnival 2010," showcases the island's vibrant spirit.

"Carnival is a special celebration to our island," said Regina LaBega, director of tourism for the St. Maarten Tourist Bureau, in a written statement. "It is a time where we celebrate our heritage and we encourage everyone to join in the festivities.”

Carnival is a tradition on the island of St. Maarten and the only place in the world that has two carnivals, the first in the north in February acting as a dress rehearsal for the big celebration that takes place in the south during April.

The 18-day festival features events such as beauty pageants, concerts by local and international artists, parades, and the burning of King Momo, which culminates the celebration.
