Most all-inclusive Mas bands will provide you with a Carnival gift/survival bag when you pick up your costume. Ronnie and Caro’s gift bag included: Purex laundry detergent, sunblock cream, 2 condoms, a necklace and matching earrings, a coupon to a jewelry store, a plastic mug, R&C T-shirt and cap.
Carnival Monday is the day for the Mas bands to show off their Kings and Queens. Dimanche Gras (Fat Sunday) is the night of the King & Queen of Carnival competition. They are the heads of each Mas band and wear large, elaborate costumes.
The rest of the masqueraders usually don’t wear their full elaborate costume on Carnival Monday. Instead they are provided with T-shirts or other casual clothes.
After Jouvert, I went back to my hotel, showered and ran back out in time for R&C’s Road March which started from their headquarters on Ariapita Avenue and went all the way to the Queen’s Park Savannah.
