With the anticipation of The Real Mas 2009 at its peak, the official parade and opening of Dominica Carnival 2009 got on the way from the Dame Eugenia Charles Boulevard to the Carnival City (LIME City) at the Pottersville Savannah.

The Streets of Roseau literally came alive with sights and sounds of the Real Mas 2009. Hundreds of spectators gathered along the Carnival route to a catch glimpse of the opening parade and to welcome in the 2009 Carnival Season.

Despite the limited resources for this year’s carnival, due to the global financial situation, many bands and gangs came out to take part in the opening parade. Flag Wavers, Bwa Bwas, Sensays, HiFi Bands, Go Girls Band, Carnival Corner… the seven beautiful Carnival Queen Contestants and the reigning Carnival Queen Marah Walter were all in attendance.

BTW: this year the Dominica Festival Committee has made some changes to the Carnival Monday and Tuesday jump up. The usual parade of bands will now be held on Tuesday afternoon because of the persistent conflict with late J’Ouvert revelers. The T-shirt bands will parade on Monday instead of Tuesday.

Here are some scenes from the Real Mas 2009 – Opening Carnival Parade. Enjoy ❗
