Bands in the East will use the Arima Velodrome for the East preliminaries, scheduled for 6 pm on Thursday. South/Central bands will be housed at Skinner Park, San Fernando, on Sunday, February 9 at 2 pm. Tobago bands will have their competition at Carnival City, next to the Dwight Yorke Stadium, Bacelot, on Friday.
