YUMA.. The Carnival Gods Have Answered Our Prayers.


This has been a year with good costumes but nothing to make me go crazy over. In fact, I was seriously doubting if I was going home for carnival, and with the exception of Harts “Bijoux” making my heart skip a beat, I wasn’t enthused. While I was pleased overall, I was still wanting something more. Along comes Yuma and mash up de place! Now, I have no loyalty to any one carnival band; I used to perpetuate that foolishness until the band I was loyal to required that past masqueraders register through a committee member and with that, I was out. They could kiss my black ass! That being said, since then I have tried Fantasy which I enjoyed, and if possible would love to try Yuma. Once the band has good vibes, good food and a costume I am in love it, I am content. Yuma hit it out of the box. Some of the costume colors were so vibrant and so pretty! “Ice Breakers” is my favorite; I don’t think I have ever seen anything like it, and I am obsessed. I also favor the sections “Sprinkles,” “Jawbreaker,” “Starburst,” and “Sugar Daddy.” I can’t attest for their road experience, but all I can say is wow for the costumes. Carnival 2016 may just see me after all.
