In light of the severe water shortage that St Kitts is currently experiencing, the St Kitts
Nevis National Carnival Committee (SKNNCC) has taken the decision to eliminate all
“Wet Down” activities customarily associated with J’ouvert, Grand Parade, and Last Lap.
As a responsible entity, the SKNNCC supports the efforts of the St Kitts Water Services
Department in preserving water at a time when the reserves are taxed to capacity. Even
though the water truck providers are not using potable water, the SKNNCC does not wish
to encourage water wastage in any form.
The SKNNCC takes this opportunity to apologize to carnival revelers and urge them to
conserve water. With the awareness that the “Wet Down” is a very popular component of
street activities, the SKNNCC strongly supports the Ministry of Public Infrastructure and
Utilities in its quest for the preservation of this most precious commodity.
The Steet Activities commence with J’ouvert on Monday, December 26, the Caribbean
Galaxy Junior Parade on Saturday, December 31, and the Grand Parade and Last Lap
on January 2, and 3, 2023.
