Carnival parade in Seychelles set to end at a different venue this year

Carnival parade in Seychelles set to end at a different venue this year ( Carnaval International de Victoria will once again bring together the world’s best carnivals and best cultural groups, keeping to its strong emblems of colors, music, excitement, and diversity.

But for its fifth edition there will also be some significant changes regarding the carnival parade on the day of April 25.

Like in previous years, the parade will once again start at 3 in the afternoon on the Bois de Rose Avenue. But it will this time round, end at the reclaimed area opposite the Espace Building, Ile du Port.

Once it leaves the starting point the carnival procession will continue down the Francis Rachel street and enter the Place de La Republic opposite the Allied building.

The second major change relates to the location the VIPs and carnival judges. They will no longer be placed in front of the National Cultural Centre as has been the case in previous carnivals. Instead they will be viewing the vibrant displays and choreographies at an area reserved especially for them directly in front of the People’s Stadium gates on the Place de La Republic.

This bright idea was suggested by Alain St.Ange Minister for Tourism and Culture after he had experienced the Düsseldorf carnival in Germany.

Once they have circled the Place de La Republic, the floats will then proceed to the exit opposite the Chaka Bros building. They will then continue on towards the Clock Tower, go down Albert Street past the Deepam Cinema, and carry on to Palm Street past the bus terminal, and then down 5th June Avenue until they proceed to the new port.

And once they reach their final stop, participants from the different delegations, local and international alike, will have a chance to unwind and mingle in the more relaxed atmosphere of the sunset and sea backdrop.

As for those members of the public who wish to keep photo mementos next to the beautifully-decorated 2015 carnival floats, this will be their opportunity to flash away with their cameras.
