WIADCA and Pan People Weather The Storm
(Panorama shows promoter and pan people come through in the crunch )
 

 

ADLIB struggles through stormy conditions before show's cancellation

New York - On Saturday September 2, 2006 the remnants of hurricane Ernesto came through New York City with a vengeance.  Soaking and battering everything in its path.  Although the storm was downgraded to a tropical depression by the time it hit the city it still managed to pack high winds and lot of rain.  The end result was the annual "Kiddies Carnival and Steelband Panorama" were canceled and rescheduled for the following day.

The shows promoter WIADCA instituted an unprecedented All Day Caribbean Festival  with the Children's Carnival starting at 11:00 a.m.,  the Steel Band Panorama Competition starting at 4:00 p.m. and culminating with the Dimanche Gras show at 10:00 p.m.   This meant that there would be continuous, non-stop action - in addition to being an added bonus for the show attendee who could now attend the latter two shows for the price of one. 

Both the pan community and WIADCA showed resilience and flexibility as the steelpan community was prodded out of its normal Saturday evening routine.  The earlier Sunday start time forced the pan community to move up their time table.  In spite of the change in schedule and reduced downtime the show went off without a hitch.

The completion of the steelband panorama was just the beginning for WIADCA officials and Steelbands, as WIADCA officials attended to the duties of running the Dimanche Gras show, while steelbands prepared to take to the road for J'Ouvert as early as 2:00 a.m. on Monday.
