Following 2 days of mass and revelry Dominica Carnival 2009 came to a close on Tuesday February 24, 2009 as revelers, locals and tourist alike took to the streets to enjoy themselves one last time.

On the road to wind down the festivities were local bands like Triple Kay, Fanatic Band, and WCK.

The season has been arguably one of the better and more peaceful carnival seasons in years past; that’s coming from the carnival organizers.

But after randomly asking some of the revelers – what they thought of this year’s carnival, while some expressed similar views, others thought that carnival has changed for the worse and the passion is gone.

I personally didn’t attend much to the events for Carnival 2006/2007, but compared to the last two seasons, this year’s carnival lacked enthusiasm/passion that makes our carnival one the better carnivals in Caribbean.

What was your impression of this year’s carnival? Tell us in the comments.

For those who missed Carnival parade and jump up, here are some photo highlights from Carnival Monday and Tuesday for your enjoy.

Every last Friday before Independence Dominica celebrates Creole Day.This is day where all Dominicans wear at least some variations of the national dress – the Wob Dwiyet is the centerpiece of Dominica’s National Wear and is worn in a variety of different styles.

To celebrate Creole Day this reunion year, the Cultural Division and the Dominica Reunion Committee held a Creole Dress Parade through the streets of Roseau showcasing the different variations of Dominica’s National Wear/Dress – while parade participants and visitors dance to the sweet sounds of Jing Ping music playing in the background.

Here are some photos from the Creole Dress Parade…enjoy ❗

The third day of Creole in the Park was surprisingly nice, despite the heavy rain which carried slightly into the latter part of the evening. Unlike day one and day two – day three for us was probably the most laid back, partly because it was raining most of the afternoon. As far as bands we covered on day three, I’ve to admit we missed a couple acts we wanted to see due to the rain, so we decided to take it easy and just casually walk the grounds to see if there anything interesting going on.

Day three started with performance by the cultural group karifuna, Point Michel Cultural Group, Phase 5 Steel band, Free Joseph, and Nature Vibes -one of the upcoming Reggae bands in Dominica.
Next on the main stage was Soca artist ‘Ricky T’, who is taking the Caribbean by storm with his soca hit song ‘Pressure Bloom’. No rain was going to defer Dominicans from seeing Ricky T perform.

The seventh act on the main stage was ever-hot, ever-exciting TripleKay International, who despite the rain rocked the massive crowd with hits from their new album Colours and their growing catalogue of hits.

Day three was brought to an end by the Kings of Cadence Midnight Groovers, who captivated crowd with many hits from the pass. The large numbers of returning Dominicans were particularly fun of the Midnight Groovers, seeing that it was Cadence music they grew up listening too.
