Carnival 2018: Behave nah chirren

They say that empty vessels make the most noise. And there is no vessel emptier than Trinidad and Tobago’s Carnival. This is why fete promoters Red Ants are warning the Environmental Management Authority (EMA) that attempts to curb   noise levels of fetes during the Carnival season could spell the end of Carnival itself. After the EMA took issue with the decibel levels of Red Ants’s fete this week the promoters issued a statement saying “The strict application of decibel levels can effectively kill Trinidad and Tobago Carnival and the culture.” After all the greatest show on earth doesn’t have much to offer spectators these days, its only saving grace is that it can at least still rupture your eardrums.
