Chairman of the National Carnival Commission (NCC) Winston “Gypsy” Peters expects more visitors for Carnival 2024 as the organization has been promoting the event abroad.

The former Calypso monarch was speaking to members of the media at the launch of Carnival 2024 at the Queen’s Park Savannah, Port of Spain on Saturday, Peters said TT had to compete with the other TT-styled carnivals around the world. Night.
Gypsy boasted that T& T gave the world this type of carnival so TT Carnival would continue to be, as the slogan said, the Mother of All Carnivals, where people could see the traditional Carnival characters that are indigenous to TT and encouraged the population to help, in whatever way they could, to make it a better Carnival on February 12 and 13, 2024.
