One of the trends that we’ve seen over the last couple of years is that many of the hotels actually have teams that come not to do the mask Junkanoo parade, but just with their costumes, their mask, their decorating, the guest are getting involved, the tourist are getting involved and their learning a lot about our culture and heritage here in the Turks and Caicos Islands, and that’s really what it’s all about. So it’s a fun event,” said Karen Whitt, Palms Resort.“One of the important things that we take seriously is security, as you know last year was flawless.  We want to thank the police and Dove Security.   We have twenty police and we have twenty security on the ground, also we have a number of securities at different locations to help protect the area.   We want to make sure that people, when you come here with the kids, don’t allow them to wonder in the dark areas.   Also we want to discourage underage drinking, there will be no bottles allowed, all drinks will be in plastic cups, but security will be at its best.   We want to discourage all of you who have a cooler and think you can come on board, not this year baby, keep your coolers home.”  David Bowen, Founder & Grace Bay Resorts“So we look forward to you the public being a part of Maskanoo 2016”  Stacy Cox, TCHTA Executive.  The TCHTA Maskanoo begins at 3pm and runs until Midnight in Grace Bay.
