One of the regular events on the national carnival calendar is The UWI’s Old Yard Sunday, hosted by the Department of Creative and Festival Arts. Teeming with traditional mas characters, hardly to be found on contemporary carnival stages any more, the afternoon is laidback and inviting to those who want to relax amidst some traditional fare. Patrons were able to sample cuisine and other homegrown treats in the welcoming ambience of the DCFA’s premises at St. Augustine.

One of the anticipated staples of the afternoon has always been those home-grown DCFA blue devils, and this year there was no exception as they made their appearance to the squeals of laughter and excitement from young and old. Breathing fire and moving to the sounds of “pay de devil! pay de devil!”, the blue devils showed mastery in performance and costuming. For more on the event, click here.
