Registration for all Carnival 2013 activities will open on Tuesday, September 4. The St. Maarten Carnival Development Foundation (SCDF) announced over the weekend that it is ready to accept registrants for what it expects to be another successful carnival season.

Persons interested in taking part in Carnival must register before December 1, 2012 when the process will be closed. Registration forms can be picked up at the Government Administration Building in Philipsburg and returned to the same location. The forms can also be sent digitally once a request is emailed to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

Registration is open for booth holders, queen pageants, junior and senior calypso shows, children and grand parades. Persons who already have a booth in the village are reminded that they still have to register for their booth. Should they fail to do so, they will forfeit their booth for Carnival 2013 and beyond.

"In keeping with our early preparations, we encourage everyone interested in registering for Carnival to do so before the deadline. We will not extend this deadline. Being registered early gives everyone enough time to prepare and stage impressive events," SCDF President Stuart Johnson said.

The SCDF can also be reached by calling 5220509 or 5225133.
