Grand Opening Ceremony - Hastings Old Town Carnival Week

Grand Opening Ceremony

The grand opening ceremony traditionally sees the Carnival Court inaugurated and the week officially declared OPEN.

This is event typically takes place on Winkle Island, but has been known to be conducted at the Fisheman's museum, a little futher along Rock-a-Nore road.

Local dignitaries are invited to attend and are often asked to crown the carnival queen, or in more recent years the king.
