The Mt Pleasant Mas Committee launched its 2023 Arima Carnival mas presentation on Friday night. The launch took place at Kenny’s Bar, Mt Pleasant Road, Arima, and saw scores of people viewing the portrayals.
The band’s public relations officer, Patrice Espinoza, said, “The band has been in existence for over 35 years. It was founded by five people, including 79-year-old Errol Gookool the only one still alive but who was not in attendance because of illness.

“The band is now taken over by members in the community and is more family oriented,” Espinoza said.
“We use the expertise of Errol to guide us in our decision-making. This year the presentation is Euphoria. After being locked up because of covid19 for two years, there is this state of intense excitement and happiness. So, that’s why this year we chose bright colours to express how we are feeling.”

On Monday evening, the band hits the road again and will be presenting Euphoria.
