‘Carnival is Tradition’ celebrates 4 popular “ole mas” characters that make their presence felt during the Carnival festivities of T&T.

 

·      Midnight Robber- This character is based on the American Wild West, inclusive of an oversize cowboy hat with fringed brim, cape and a prop gun.

 

·      Dame Lorraine – This character appears as a female dressed with exaggerated 'assets' in the style of a rich planter’s wife from the 18th and early 19th Century.

 

·      Blue Devil – “The Devil' was traditionally brown from molasses but since Paramin didn’t have cane, our forefathers got creative with a laundry whitener called Crown Blue.

 

·      Pierrot Grenade - This colourful character is the satirical descendant of the Pierrot – a finely dressed masquerader and deeply learned scholar.
