Trinidad Express / After a five-year hiatus, the King and Queen of Carnival competition has been reintroduced into tonight’s Dimanche Gras show scheduled for the Queen’s Park Savannah (QPS) in Port of Spain. Chutney band Dil-e-Nadan will lead a jam session while the audience awaits the judges’ results. Artistic director of Dimanche Gras show, Dr Rudolph Ottley shared these tidbits, but declined to comment on the cost of producing the event themed “The Power and The Glory”. Dimanche Gras is expected to start at 7.30 p.m. and end by midnight. On the big night, calypso bards will attempt to clinch the coveted Calypso Monarch crown from reigning champion Chalkdust (Dr Hollis Liverpool) and claim the $700,000 prize.
