Thousands of Guyanese from all corners of the country and as well as a large amount of tourists, braved the weather last Saturday and took to the streets of Georgetown to get a glimpse of the beautiful men and women decked out in their brightly coloured costumes celebrating the country’s 52nd Independence Anniversary.

Guyana Carnival kicked off May 18 and will culminate today. During the hosting of the event, several mega concerts were held featuring some of the best in the business. These include Kes, Machel Montano and Destra preformed throughout the week at the different events which were held in popular areas across Georgetown.

Additionally, those who preferred a laid back atmosphere were treated to a steelband jamboree and the Miss Guyana World Pageant. The carnival committee is hoping that this is a venture that they can continue in the coming years to indulge all carnival chasers with the best Guyanese experience.
