We Mix Business with Pleasure.

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti, Wednesday March 5, 2014, CMC – At least two people have been killed and more than 100 injured during Carnival celebrations that climax here on Tuesday.

Haiti’s Civil Protection Office said that one person died as a result of a vehicular accident while the other died from excessive drinking that usually accompanies the three-day street festival.

Most of the 102 injuries were as a result of serious allergies and street scuffles.

Unlike previous years, Carnival celebrations this year are taking place in the western town of Gonaives under a government effort to “decentralse” Carnival by holding festivities in different towns in the countryside each year.

Government said it distributed five million US dollars to repair the infrastructure in Gonaives.
