Bahamas Masqueraders Front and Center for Bahamas Junkanoo Carnival Marketing


Tribune Staff Reporter

THE Ministry of Tourism launched its 2016 Junkanoo Carnival marketing campaign in Washington, DC, over the weekend, showcasing the anticipated event to thousands at the Travel Adventure Show.

Paulette Zonicle, Bahamas consul general to Washington, DC, said the event was just “one of many other avenues” the Ministry of Tourism is using to “put Junkanoo Carnival and the Bahamas out there.”

The promotion coincided with Jet Blue offering direct flights from Washington’s Reagan National Airport to the Lynden Pindling International Airport. The service will be offered daily until May 3.

Ms Zonicle said the response so far has been “so great” that she expects a “large grouping of persons” will travel to New Providence and Grand Bahama for this year’s Junkanoo Carnival.

“This is one of the largest shows in the region and so each year The Bahamas participates and it puts us out there. As consul general I am honoured to share this experience because it makes me even more excited about going back to the Bahamas because of the beauty. These shows generate a lot of response,” Ms Zonicle said.
