Good weather and strong crowd support made for successful Kiddies Carnival celebrations in Central Trinidad on Sunday. Youngsters from more than 15 bands danced and pranced on stages at Couva and Chaguanas. At Couva, Ramchand Rajbal Maraj, chairman of the Couva Carnival Committee, said crowd support for regional celebrations has been growing over the last two decades. The first band to cross the stage at around 4 pm was The Caribbean Sea, a presentation of the Enterprise Youth. Bands taking part in the Central competitions, depending on their place of origin, either hit Chaguanas or Couva first.
