Full Carnival in 2023? NCC in planning stage

Plans for a full fledged Carnival in 2023 is currently in the works.

This was signalled by the National Carnival Commission on Friday, when they posted a photo teasing the full return of celebrations.

A photo with the text ‘The Road to Trinidad & Tobago Carnival 2023,’ was uploaded as a cover photo to the NCC’s Facebook page on Friday afternoon and immediately caused a buzz.

In an interview with the Newsday, NCC chairman Winston “Gypsy” Peters “As of now we are planning for Carnival 2023 and I like the trajectory of the pandemic, it is subsiding all over the world and we are no different.

“As of now what we are looking for a full-fledged Trinidad Carnival the way we know it.”

Peters added: “We know that Carnival 2023 is going to come. If something untoward happens along the way then we will modify whatever we are doing but we can’t just sit down and not plan for Carnival 2023, so we always have to keep planning.

“We are the National Carnival Commission we exist for nothing more than Carnival. We exist to plan for and execute Carnival.”
