PLEASANTVILLE, NJ (July 17, 2017) – The AC Caribbean Carnival was back in Pleasantville on Saturday, July 15th with costumed dancers, Caribbean music, food and fun for the community. The rain could not stop us from having a great time!
The festivities began at 1 p.m. in the City Hall parking lot where the Caribbean Carnival Parade kicked off. More than 100 elaborately costumed parade marchers danced through the streets of Pleasantville to the sounds of Soca, Tassa, Calypso, Reggae and steel drum music. Also in the parade were Miss Pleasantville and Mayor Jesse L. Tweedle.
After the parade, the celebration continued at the Pleasantville Middle School Field on Mill Road with vendors and more music and dancing.
“It is always a fun time when the Caribbean Carnival Parade is in town,” said Pleasantville Mayor Jesse Tweedle. “Many members of the community enjoyed the parade as we made our way down the streets. Some even celebrated with us!”
