Carnival Committee Plans New Children’s Rides for Carnival Village

A new carnival ride for children at V.I Carnival 2018

As the anticipation for VI Carnival 2018 brews, children of the Virgin Islands are in for a special treat, thanks to a decision made by the Virgin Islands Carnival Committee (VICC) Executive Board to have a new selection of rides at the children’s village.
The executive board accepted a proposal from St. Croix native Zephyrinus Thomas, owner of ILand Rides, to provide rides for the children’s village nightly at the Fort Christian Parking Lot beginning April 20.
Halvor Hart III, executive director of the VICC, said it was time to upgrade the rides and provide the children with an experience that is second to none.
“In response to the public’s cry year after year for newer rides and the successful execution of the rides at St. Croix’s festival earlier this year, we felt it was time to make a change and support a local businessman,” said Hart.
With the addition of the new rides, the board hopes that the people of the Virgin Islands will enjoy a “stress-reliever” carnival.
VI Carnival 2018, kicked off with Soca in the Market on Feb. 10.
