OVER 30 new events have been added to the Carnival events calendar for 2020.

Among those new events are Soka with Her Concert, a Randy Glasgow Production that comes off on February 7, at the Hasley Crawford Stadium and Escape Cooler Cruise that leaves from the Port of Spain Waterfront harbour on February 21 at 10 am.

These new events are just some of the 200 – plus events that are being put on for the upcoming Carnival season, and of those approximately 85 are cooler fetes and cruises, along with some 20 – plus breakfast parties.

Also making a comeback to the lineup of events are the One Fete All-inclusive carded for January 18 at the Queen’s Park Oval, Headley All-inclusive Fete on February 20, and Flight Cruise on February 23.

But the Carnival action will started this morning at the Pigeon Point Heritage Park in Tobago with Soca on the Sand, where a large number of top soca stars were billed to appear.

This event pushed aside Trinity College’s Soka in Moka All-inclusive fete, which has been known as the first fete for the season for a number of years.

At the end of the season, it appears Tobago will be the place to be as Store Bay, No Man’s Land and Mt Irvine Beach have all scheduled events from Ash Wednesday to Ash Friday.

But the closing events will be held in Trinidad on February 29, with Tribe’s Las Jam at the Hasely Crawford Stadium in the afternoon and Champs of Steel plus later in the evening.
