Haiti - Culture : D-1, Carnival of children in the Capital
Thursday the Town Hall of Port-au-Prince thanked all the revelers and DJs who took part in the activities of the 3rd pre-carnival Sunday (January 28th) that it described as a "real success".

The 3 advanced medical posts, reported for this 3rd Sunday, have treated 74 cases (24 light cases and moderated 80 cases). A large part of the people have been treated for excessive drinking. On this last point, the Medical Service of the Port-au-Prince Town Hall warns the population and insists on the danger represented by the excessive consumption of alcoholic beverages.

In addition, the Town Hall noticed the deplorable use of "tchatchas", cultural instrument of the history of the carnival, when some malicious carnivals sharpens the point, transforming it into a real weapon... The Communal Administration recalled once again to the DJ's and animators accompanying them, that the obscene remarks as well as the foreign musics are totally prohibited on the course of the carnival.

Lastly, the Town Hall of Port-au-Prince invites disguised children and their parents on Sunday, February 4 from 2:30 pm to participate in the Carnaval des Enfants (Children Carnival). From Bern Street, a walking band, totally for children, accompanied by jugglers, acrobats and "bèf lakay", will ensure the atmosphere and give the children their own experience of the carnival. Note that the course will be closed to traffic from 2:00 pm so that the children's carnival runs smoothly.
