Purely Dominica

The editors over at BBC Caribbean have started a very interesting discussion on whether or not summer Carnivals in Caribbeans should scaled back.

Just earlier this month St Vincent and the Grenadines and St Lucia celebrated Carnival. Now Antigua & Barbuda, Barbados, Grenada are gearing up for their own celebrations next month.

There’s also Notting Hill carnival, Caribbana and labour day which in the diaspora later down in the year.

And not forgetting our annual World Creole Music Festival, which the organizers have already admitted cash flow problems that’s affecting the staging of this year’s festival.

But with the current global financial crisis should Caribbean countries scale back or postpone these festivities altogether and use the money for social projects? Have your say in the comments below.

It should be used as an investment. How much is being spend and what is the rate of return on folks coming to the island(s) to spend their money. If not many people are expected off-island then it needs to be scaled back.
