Carnival in Boscobel

‘ALL A WE IS ONE’ was the theme of Boscobel Carnival today as residents of St Peter revelled under the Saturday afternoon sun.

The inaugural festival saw scores making their way along the Diamond Corner to Boscobel Pasture route.

Scores turned out for the inaugural Boscobel carnival.

The event was organised by resident Sasha Edwards, as a release for the residents who have been subjected to nearly a year without water.

Edwards said it was also meant to revive the once close-knit community.

“After the water shortages I find the community became disconnected so we wanted to bring the community back together,” she said.

The event was organised as a release for residents who endured a year without running water.

Edwards added that she was inspired by her 14-year-old daughter to reach out to the frustrated residents.

She indicated she is already planning for carnival for 2018, given the positive response to this year’s event.

    What a wonderful story about an individual’s connection to community and inspired action to reinvigorate that connection among her fellow residents. Well done!

    @ Peter – Can you imagine any of your people with an Afro Wig on? Tell me how that would look to you. If you said dumb then you will get my drift. The only set of your people who were afro wigs are clowns and in a variety of colors too.
