Trinidad & Tobago Carnival: Part 8 – Road March

Posted By Sarina On March 4, 2014 @ 10:25 am In series | 2 Comments

This entry is part 8 of 9 in the series Trinidad and Tobago Carnival [1]

As Carnival Tuesday draws to a close one song, and one song alone will be crowned as the “Road March” winner. To win “Road March” one’s song needs to be one the played most often over the two day Carnival period, at the various judging points throughout both islands. In many ways the “Road March” is the People’s Choice as it is the tune that the crowds most respond to in terms of keeping their energy and stamina up.

SIGHTS:

Road March 2014 “Ministry of Road (MOR)” by Machel Montano [10]

SOUNDS:

)

Road March 2013 “Fantastic Friday” by Super Blue [11]

TASTES:

Saltfish Accra

Portable snacks are the way to go, Saltfish Accra [12] is easily popped into a paper bag and carried ‘on de road’. Feel free to pop in some pepper sauce or ketchup in a small plastic bag as well. These used to be easily bought on roadsides but I have seen them less and less in recent years.
