Thousands took to the streets of Georgetown to celebrate Guyana’s 43rd Republic Anniversary – 25th Feb 2013

mashThis was part of the scene as thousands took to the streets of Georgetown to celebrate Guyana’s 43rd Republic anniversary, under the theme ‘Reflecting Creativity, Embracing Diversity’.

February 23 is celebrated in a carnival-like atmosphere.

Georgetown came alive with about 30 colourful floats sponsored by the various private and public sector businesses and enterprises.

Mashramani is the celebration of Guyana’s attainment of Republican status. Many revelers adorned themselves in colourful costumes depicting the Mash Theme.

Loud Soca music blared along the route until the bands reached into the compound of the National Park.

Digicel and Banks DIH, and CARIB as usual brought on a massive parade.

The Mash Secretariat is expected to announce the winners of this year’s Mash Celebrations later this week.
