The US Virgin Islands Department of Festival’s popular launch of a virtual carnival series is expanding.
After the successful debut of the “Home Wuk” virtual carnival series, the USVI is adding more “stay-at-home” opportunities celebrating Carnival Virgin Islands, according to Ian Turnbull, director of the US Virgin Islands Department of Festivals.
With Carnival Virgin Islands on St Thomas postponed this year in light of the global pandemic, the USVI is continuing its “virtual” carnival, under the theme of “All Eyes on We for 2020.”
The Virtual Carnival will include live-streamed village performances by Poizon, Fusion and Spectrum Bands,
The online audience will also be able to participate in a weekly Carnival Zumba with top instructor Gaynel Harris during the rest of April.
“We wanted to offer a sense of normalcy during an extraordinary time in history, so we are providing fun and entertainment while sharing the culture of the US Virgin Islands,” Turnbull said. “It’s about providing stress relief in a new, virtual format,” he added, encouraging the community to “play safe and stay safe.”
