PHILIPSBURG, St. Maarten - The St. Maarten Carnival Development Foundation (SCDF) announced on Friday that 13 individual singers and 2 bands are registered to participate in the 2017 Carnival Roadmarch competition. They will all attempt the dethrone the two-time reigning monarch Rumari “Rumer” Rogers.
The SCDF has made a slight change with the scheduling of the Roadmarch competition for Carnival 2017. For the last five years the event was held together with the Senior Calypso Eliminations. For 2017 however, the foundation has decided to combine the event with the Band Clash competition.
“We think these two events go great together. They are on the same energy level and creates the atmosphere we want to see on that night,” SCDF President Alston Lourens said. “The Calypso Eliminations is a different event with a different, much older crowd. With the influx of young singers into the Roadmarch competition, it was clear that the two didn’t work well together. But with Band Clash we have the prefect mix,” Lourens said.
