Participating groups included, in order, Don Flip Carnival Group, Baby Champagne, Deja Kids, Jolly/Whiz Kids, Little Groovers and TOB bringing up the rear. A special trailer was dedicated to the winners of the Children’s Roadmarch and Calypso Contest with their band, and the Reina Infantil, from Oranjestad Companashi, Sheqayli Ascencion adorned a special float in her elegant little gown.
The parade was awash with brilliantly-hued feathered costumes and floats, along with millions of sequins and sparkly body make up. The various groups proudly displayed their creative efforts, for a charming spectacle for all.
This coming Sunday, February 23rd, will be the Oranjestad Children’s Parade, beginning at 1:00 PM at the east end of Oranjestad, and finishing at the western border at the Valero Station on L.G. Smith Blvd.
