Miami Broward Carnival Board of Directors and Bandleaders
The chronology of events since the initial announcement was simple and the subsequent backlash was inevitable..
On May 1st, the Miami Carnival board originally announced a date change that lit off a social media storm from people across the globe. Carnival lovers took to the committee’s Fanpage to voice their displeasure,the Mas leaders released their own announcement to keep the date and then the premiere event promoters were threatening to stick with their planned event dates.
Miami Carnival was on track to split up once again, have two carnivals and leave the committee with a stadium venue and no revelers.
The initial decision to disregard the entire purpose of cultural tourism led alot of people scratching their heads.
Cultural Tourism — The movement of persons to cultural attractions away from their normal place of residence, with the intention to gather new information and experiences to satisfy their cultural needs
This week the Mas Band Leaders are meeting to discuss how to move forward with the original Miami Carnival plans and date… stay tuned for updated venue announcements…
