Haiti - Culture : D-1, beginning of pre-carnival activities in the Capital
Friday, members of the Municipal Council of Port-au-Prince held a working session with the main officials of the Departmental Directorate of the West (DDO) of the Police, as part of pre-carnival exercises in the commune of Port-au-Prince which will begin on Sunday 15 January.

The Principal Mayor of the Municipal Council, Youri Chevry took the opportunity to announce the theme chosen for the 2017 Carnival "An'n fè Ayiti reviv" and announced a whole series of measures discussed with the DDO, in order to allow the pre-carnival, take place under optimal conditions of safety. To this end, the DDO will put at the disposal of the town hall, spotlights to illuminate the entire route of the parade, said Mayor Chevry.

In addition, the Mayor announced that work was under way to cover all open-air sewers identified in the metropolitan area in order to avoid accidents, particularly during the performance of walking bands.

In addition, the Mayor of Port-au-Prince reminded the DJ's of the measures agreed with them on Wednesday, namely :

  • The departure schedule for all DJs must be scrupulously respected ;
  • DJs will have to respect the order of the parade from a line-up previously established and communicated to each ;
  • Formal prohibition to play foreign songs on the course ;
  • Formal prohibition to play obscene songs
  • All the tanks, before starting the route, will inevitably have to undergo a rigorous technical and mechanical inspection by agents of the city council and the National Police of Haiti, attendant for this purpose ;
  • All tanks shall be equipped with a fire extinguisher and a toilet.

He reiterated that the Municipal Administration of Port-au-Prince, anxious to make the pre-carnival exercises a success, intended to take all the necessary steps, by common agreement with the concerned bodies to guarantee the order, public peace and to prevent any kind of accident that could occur on the course.

The members of the 2017 Carnival Committee will be introduced shortly to the public, concluded Mayor Chevry, who said he relies on the support of musical groups and artists for the full success of the 2017 Carnival.
