Parade To Feature International Floats

Italy delegation heads to Seychelles to participate in 2011 Carnaval International de Victoria

Feb 13, 2011

In keeping with its carnival tradition and with the wide array of carnival costumes and masks associated with it, Italy's city of Venice is due to participate in the 2011 Seychelles "Carnival International de Victoria," due to be held in Seychelles' capital of Victoria between March 4-6, 2011.

A walk through the streets of Venice will reveal the exquisite craftsmanship of its costumes and masks, which date back to the Renaissance, when Venice was among the most powerful states in Europe, and indeed the world. Now, these are set to grace the streets of Victoria in the Seychelles over 3 days of carnival fever in the form of a float from Venice, which is due to be accompanied by Ms. Sylvanie Toussaint, a Seychelles' Tourism Ambassador residing in Italy.

Italy is a main tourist market for Seychelles, and the participation by Italy is a welcome move. "Seychelles and Italy have a long association and have been friendly countries. We value and respect the people of Italy as one of the great nations of Europe, and their delegation will be welcomed at the 2011 Seychelles 'Carnaval International de Victoria,' alongside the many participating countries from the community of nations descending on Seychelles for this new carnival event that is set to make its mark in the world of carnivals," Alain St.Ange, CEO of the Seychelles Tourism Board and eTurboNews Ambassador said.

The 2011 Seychelles "Carnaval International de Victoria" will be opened on the afternoon of March 4 in Victoria, the capital of Seychelles. The carnival procession will be held on March 5, where some 20 international floats from different countries and world organizations will parade together with some 40 Seychelles participating organizations.

A large contingent of press and television from the four corners of the world will be in Seychelles to cover this 2011 Seychelles "Carnaval International de Victoria," providing visibility to this event now set to join the world of carnivals.
