Two days of Street Jump-up came to an end on Tuesday night at 10 pm in Roseau and around Dominica. There was one confirmed report of a stabbing early on J’ouvert morning, but a full report of confirmed incidents over the carnival season will be forthcoming as soon as the police public relations committee releases the information to the media.
Meanwhile all reports indicate that the 2016 calypso final competition was a complete success, and residents and visitors alike appeared to have got their money’s worth. The carnival queen show, the junior monarch competition, teenage pageant, princess show and other shows appeared to have all gone reasonably well, but as is always the case, not everyone agreed with the judges’ decision in all cases, but the judges’ decision is always final in every case.
Stay tuned to Q95 for more reports on all of the carnival activities that took place throughout Dominica in a later news cast.
