Los Barbies are the top Comparsas of this year’s San Pedro Carnaval


El Gran Carnaval de San Pedro has ended, but not before delighting thousands of islanders and visitors with a grand island-style ‘fiesta’. The festivities were full of painting, parties and comparsas presentations. This year, three comparsas groups (San Pedro AIDS Commision, Flora Ancona , and Los Barbies) took to the streets of downtown San Pedro to not just add fun to the celebration, but also to try impress the judges for the coveted title of best comparsas. After three days of non-stop dancing, from Sunday February 26th through Tuesday, February 28th, Los Barbies were declared the winners of this year’s Carnaval. In second place was the San Pedro AIDS Commission Comparsas Group, and in third place Flora Ancona Comparsas Group.
Congratulations to all the comparsas groups and a BIG thank you to everyone who made these year’s festivities possible.

See you next year!
