The carrier’s in-flight magazine brings out the electrified moments of the annual Carnival International de Victoria. The author of the two full page article entitled “Carnaval International de Victoria plans its 3rd edition in February 2013’’ is Glynn Burridge. The article has recapped the Seychelles second edition of the “ Carnival International de Victoria”: the island’s biggest party drawing thousands of people to the streets of Victoria for a raucous three day celebration of music and laughter.
The second edition drew the largest cohort of foreign press ever to land in Seychelles in the one go, and the islands witnessed live entertainment and cultural manifestations from both local and international groups. It was very evident that the beat of carnival songs echoed through the town centre and right across the Seychelles for the duration of the carnival. Now with two successful carnivals already under its belt, the third edition of the annual Carnival International de Victoria is planned for 8 -10th February 2013. At present Seychelles is expecting several international participants including Notting Hill from the UK, South Africa, Brazil, La Reunion, Zimbabwe, Italy ,United Arab Emirates, South Korea, Indonesia , Trinadad & Tobago, Belgium and India to name but a few will grace the streets of Victoria enjoying the soothing tropical climate of Seychelles for the much awaited event of the archipelago.Glynn Burridge states in the article that the carnival is placed in the “context of Seychelles culture and also its legacy of the very first carnival held in Seychelles in 1971. “I also make the case that Seychelles with its multi-ethic, harmonious society and island-style spontaneity is a natural home for a carnival in troubled times on the international scene, showing what can be achieved by international camaraderie and good will. By hosting the third edition of the Carnaval International de Victoria, Seychelles is setting an example of harmonious living and co-operation between different people” Glynn Burridge said in his article in the latest Air Seychelles Inflight Magazine.
