Carnival was a time of celebration for the whole community

“I remember the carnival, it was huge, it just seemed like there were hundreds and hundreds of people.  If you got lost from your parent that was it, it was crowded.  I remember the man with the mask and the whip, and I remember one year there was this massive big thing made out of jelly, it was huge and everyone could get jelly. Going to the carnival meant having your best clothes out, you really prepared for it, you made a weekend of it, everybody went to carnival you know.  Not like what you see today.” (Jackie Macneish)
