St. Kitts Carnival | ‘Sugar Mas 40:40’

I really got caught off guard with this information. It goes to show that not enough attention is paid to the rest of the Caribbean region. Having said that I was searching for information about a song done by Shakki (We losing it) that I also posted today.  Of  course you can go to for more information about the upcoming festival.  The St. Kitts | Nevis Carnival website is loaded with information about the festival and can be accessed from this link: "Sugar Mas" (St. Kitts and Nevis National Carnival).

The following information is about the upcoming St. Kitts Carnival - "Sugar Mas 40:40". The Carnival festivities are scheduled to take place from November 25, 2011 and will run until January 03, 2012. This year people will get a chance to experience "Basseterre Alive", a new event that was added this year to the National Carnival. 

The following information was sourced from the following website: SKNVibes
BASSETERRE, St. Kitts – A proposed St. Kitts and Nevis Carnival Lineup has been revealed to the general public recently and is filled with a number of fetes and activities to celebrate Sugar Mas 40:40 Non-Stop Mas and Party.
