Today is Fantastic Friday and the biggest titles of the season will be decided tonight and during the next four days. The Panorama champ will be decided tomorrow at the Queen's Park Savannah, Port of Spain, to be followed by the competitions for the Calypso Monarch and the King and Queen of Carnival at the Dimanche Gras show on Carnival Sunday at the same venue. Then its on to Carnival Monday and Tuesday for Jouvert and the Parade of the Bands through the streets of Port of Spain. After that we say "Carnevale" which literally means "farewell to the flesh" and "hello" to the season of Lent, which for those of the Christian belief, begins on Ash Wednesday, February 22.
