Calypso Fiesta 2014 | Skinner Park Comes Alive Today!

Skinner Park comes alive today with the sounds of Calypso music. It is the time when Calypsonians sing their hearts out to make it to the finals. It is a time of bliss and shear jubilation and then there could be gross disappointment with toilet paper missiles going airborne and arcing onto the stage showering the artist with a messy blessing of toilet paper rebuke!

Carnival is bacchanal and on this day the bacchanal could be orchestrated by those with an Axe to grind or because of a dismal stage presence/performance. There is a 'toilet paper crew' strategically situated in the park just waiting to shower a contestant they despise or believe is deserving of this baptism of streaming bathroom tissue. This is one aspect of "D'Park" that really comes to life during the Calypso Fiesta when rolls of tissue designed for bathroom hygiene are meticulously used for streaming from the audience to the stage - Cossel and her crew know that only too well!

This is the show to watch because it has it all... sweet music, drama, intrigue, uplifting lyrics, political jabs, 'bacchanal and kankalang' and sometimes the bottom simply falls out on a performance leading to utter disappointment, boos and sometimes toilet paper! Don't miss any of it!
