Carnival season passes on sale in FebruaryPOSTED: 01/21/13 1:01 PM
St. Maarten – Season passes for Carnival 2013 will go on sale on February 2 for $170. Sponsored by UTS/Chippie, the St. Maarten Carnival Development Foundation SCDF finalized details surrounding the passes over the weekend. The passes have become “must haves” for Carnival lovers.
The season pass allows the purchaser entrance to all ten shows in Carnival Village. “The idea has also been to offer the public a cost saving measure for Carnival and generate early buzz and pre-sales for the shows,” SCDF President Mike Granger said. “Last year the passes were priced at $140, but this year we have a longer schedule with two additional international show nights. So basically, you will be getting two additional shows for just $30. You can’t beat that deal,” Granger said.
Residents are able to pay for the season pass in two installments, with 50 percent due on registration. The balance is then due on or before April 1. Registering from abroad is possible by emailing for details.
“The season passes have been a big hit for us the last two years. People started asking about them in December. We are happy to offer this mode of convenience again for Carnival 2013,” Granger said.
