“1st Annual Ocala Carnival September 5-6, 2015”

The North Central Caribbean Culture Carnival Association is proud to present our 1st Annual Ocala Carnival Celebration benefiting our non-profit partners; the Marion County Children's Alliance, R.A.M.A.L., and the Silver Springs Shores Resource Center. The Carnival celebration was designed to not only generate much needed revenue for our partners, but to provide a cultural exchange between the Caribbean Culture and the residents of Central Florida.

Our Ocala Carnival celebration begins with a Kick-off Party at Market Street at Heath Brook (former Party Shop space), located at 4414 SW College Rd Ocala, FL 34474. The Kick-off Party is being held on Saturday September 5, 2015 from 9:30 PM until 1:00 AM. Admission is $20 and includes a fantastic Caribbean meal (beverage extra).

The Carnival parade and concert will be held on Sunday September 6th.  Line up for the parade will begin at 1:00 PM at Howard Middle School located at 1655 NW 10th Street. The parade will officially begin at 2:00 PM with the arrival of the Grand Marshall. The parade route will proceed from Howard Middle School, North on Martin Luther King Blvd, West on 17th Pl, and South into the recreational complex.

The event will have live performances with Caribbean artists including Saffire, Sasha Melody, and I-Land Rebels, as well as Caribbean DJs from around the country. There will be bounce houses by Space Walk of Ocala and face painting, as well as food vendors and food trucks. Be sure to bring you blankets and lawn chairs and get ready for fun family celebration.
