With two co-hosts - South Africa and Reunion Island - Seychelles intends to make this “carnival of carnivals” a major event of the Vanilla Islands, and Reunion Island is taking its role to heart.

The opening of the Carnaval International de Victoria kept its promises for glitz and glamor, being honored with the attendance of actress Angelique Gerber, Miss Reunion 2011 Marie Payet, and Seychellois singer Michelle Marengo acting as mistresses of ceremony. Each of these ladies performed their orations in their original languages of English, French, and Seychellois Creole, respectively.

Seychelles paid particular attention to the visibility of the 2014 carnival with the presence of 151 international journalists, giving participating destinations the opportunity to highlight their cultural wealth to this grand presence of global media. This year, Reunion Island is positioned as a loyal partner of Carnaval International de Victoria with a large delegation of artists: the Sacred Drums, Eric Benjam Pounouss, and singers. A delegation dressed in traditional costumes also strolled through the streets of the Seychellois capital at the procession of floats on Saturday, April 26, 2014. Rounding out the extent of the cultural diversity of Reunion Island at this year`s carnival, the island`s gastronomy was also given an important place on the promotion agenda – a great Vanilla Islands event delighting the taste buds of the lucky attendees.
