The 2019 Puerto Plata Carnival is celebrated every Sunday of February in Long Beach, where the ocean drive begins ( locally known as the Malecon ). Many comparsas filled the air with colorful costumes and danced on the stage where locals and foreigners enjoyed since 4pm when the show starts.
Merengue performers were also on stage on evening hours, bringing a free show that many welcomed until late at night. This Carnival was considered to be better organized than previous ones, and was sponsored by Brugal Rum and Lifestyles Resorts, under the umbrella of the DR Ministry of Tourism. The video was sponsored by Golden Treasures Real Estate, based in Sosua.
