Dream Entertainment launches Xodus Carnival
After seven years of conceptualising and planning, Dream Entertainment has partnered with Yuma to officially launch its carnival event, Xodus.
The launch was held last week at the Courtleigh Hotel in New Kingston.
The launch served as a teaser for what is to come for the carnival season. The costume parade had all the guests enthralled.
Xodus costumes are not the 'regular'. They were designed by both Jamaican and Trinidad designers who ensured that they made designs that catered to all body types.
According to Kamal Bankay, director of public relations at Dream Entertainment, the group decided to finally launch Xodus as all the puzzles finally fitted into place.
"The aim is to have an event that paid homage to those who paved the way for us while also stepping it up a notch. We are here to change the game. Everyone knows Dream Entertainment as the team that keeps exceptional parties. With Xodus, we are expanding our portfolio, and we believe that this event will be a carnival party like no other," he said.
The team announced that they would be having special events leading up to the road march and that guests would have the option of choosing from Italian, Jamaican, and many other cuisine options on the day.
These events will be announced shortly.
Bankay said that they have seen where other carnivals have fallen short and wanted to pick up the slack.
"I have been to many carnivals, and I know from first-hand experience the headache that persons go through to get costumes, and when they do get it, it doesn't fit right or it isn't even the right costume. We at Dream want to eliminate all headaches associated with carnival. We looked at all possible mishaps, and we have put procedures in place to avoid as well as fix any issues," Bankay said.
He said that the team has hired seamstresses who will be on hand to fix all alterations needed.
"Xodus is not looking to take over Jamaica's carnival market, but to snatch its own piece of the pie," Bankay said.
