A Peek at the Winners of the 2018 Carnival King & Queen Competition

Even as the city recorded a bloody weekend, over on the north side, there were several festive events taking place; the Belikin Bash at the B.T.L. Park and the Carnival King and Queen Competition at the Marion Jones Sporting Complex. As early as five p.m. on Saturday, prejudging commenced before the revelers from ten bands, five juniors and five seniors, played their giant costumes before a panel of eight judges. Outside of the technical problems with the generator used to power the lights and sounds system on the grounds, the event was filled with the spirit of the bacchanal. After six hours of judging, the results were in and Belizean Jewel swept first place for senior king and queen for the second time in a row. Meanwhile Mother Nature’s Creation captured second place for both categories and so did Soca Moca rounding out the third spot with both its king and queen costumes. In the junior division, it was a mix bag. Trenchtown Masqueraders came out on top with its junior king, while Jump Street Posse and Black Pearl came second and third, respectively. Soca Massive shocked the spectators and the judges when its queen ruled in the junior division. Black Pearl and Collet Royal Revelers came second and third.
