Amid the passage of Hurricane Ian, the Miami Carnival Host Committee has issued a statement reassuring carnival enthusiasts that Miami Carnival remains on. A statement issued on Thursday morning by Miami Broward One Carnival Host Committee chair, Joan Hinkson-Justin, stated that festivities will kick off on Saturday, October 1st with the Junior Carnival at the Central Broward Regional Park.

Overnight, various parts of Florida felt the brunt of Hurricane Ian as flood waters rose and gusty winds blew trees and power lines down. In her statement, Hinkson-Justin said, “Our thoughts and prayers are with those impacted by Hurricane Ian in Southwest, Central and Northeastern Florida.”

Miami Carnival is considered one of the major carnivals in the world, encompassing all of the traditional elements of a Caribbean style carnival, delivering steelpan music and competition, tastes of the Caribbean on parade day and not to mention, the contagious sound of sweet soca music at all events. This year, on October 9th at the Dade County Fair and Exposition grounds, artistes like Patrice Roberts, Shurwayne Winchester, Teddyson John, Skinny Fabulous, Nadia Batson, Iwer George, Farmer Nappy and ‘Jerusalema’ vocalist, Zikode Nomceba of South Africa, will entertain carnival lovers.

Miami Carnival continues to create an experience that is enjoyed by not only those from the Diaspora, but also persons new to the carnival experience. In 2021, while many were uncertain of the way forward amid the Covid-19 pandemic, Miami Carnival’s organizing committee pulled off the festival, implementing strategic and effective safety measures to ensure that patrons felt comfortable attending and enjoying the events. Now, even as Hurricane Ian presents some discomfort, the organizing team is assuring that things will proceed as planned, in the same breath, urging those who can assist, to aid those who’ve been negatively impacted by the passage of the hurricane. “We encourage our Miami Carnival committee to support the thousands of Floridians who will need help rebuilding, by contributing to the FloridaDisasterFund.org to texting DISASTER to 20222,” the statement read.

Both hard copy and digital, IslandLime Magazine’s on a mission. In the ever-expanding world that we now occupy, efforts continue to share the most authentic Caribbean energy, with everyone outside the Diaspora. It’s not a new idea but the man behind it has all the gumption it takes to make it make sense.

Simon Baptiste believes in the Caribbean potential.

Simon Baptiste says his team’s vision is to create a global platform that allows for the stories of Caribbean creators and creatives, to be shared with people around the world – people who are anxious to discover more about the heartbeat of the region. “Although we recognize the importance of what goes on within our region, there are also hundreds of tales – fiction and non fiction, being crafted by islanders in territories that stretch from North America ti Australia,” he said in a recent Ebuzztt chat. “It’s our job to reveal the players and the art.”

The magazine’s official launch took place on July 4th in Port- of- Spain, Trinidad and featured performances by Key DeVere and John G. In the aftermath of the launch, Simon issued a statement, thanking folks who came out in support. He explained that the rationale behind delivering the project now, lies in understanding that we – the Caribbean people, built nations. “A chain of over 700 islands, encompassing 1,063,000 square miles, has produced incomparable talent- people who have left and continue to leave an indelible mark on art, fashion, music, literature, entertainment, sports, science and technology,” he wrote. Baptiste praised his people, adding, “From Capitol Hill, to working spaces in Nairobi, to the offices of an advertising agency, Down Under, you’ll find someone who has island roots, and spreads the philosophy of what makes the Caribbean and its people so unbelievably spectacular.”
