Registration for St. Maarten Carnival 2012 opens on Thursday

POSTED: 09/6/11 2:10 PM

GREAT BAY – The St. Maarten Carnival Development Foundation SCDF announced that registration for all events of Carnival 2012 will open this Thursday. The early start fits the SCDF-board’s strategy to begin early with the preparation of every aspect of Carnival.

The registration process closes on Friday, December 2; this gives interested parties some three months to register with the foundation. All registration forms will be available at the security desk in the Government Administration Building; they should be returned to the same location.

The SCDF can email the forms on request. Email requests can be sent to sxmcarnival@hotmail.com. “After a successful Carnival 2011, the interest in 2012 is very high. We have several people already asking about participation,” SCDF-President Stuart Johnson said.

“We are opening registration now to give all stakeholders the opportunity to plan and prepare for the season. Early planning is not only key for the SCDF but for all involved in Carnival to ensure a successful season. We urge all interested persons to register before December 2 so we can move into the New Year with momentum towards April,” Johnson added.

On Thursday registration will open for booth holders, junior and senior calypsonians, troupe leaders, bands, junior, senior and teen queens. The SCDF has already closed off the period for promoters to submit the request for an international night. The SCDF reported that ten requests have been received.

Carnival 2012 is scheduled to run next year from April 19 until May 2.
