I have been coming to Carnival since I was four. I am seven now. This year my costume is a Roman girl wearing a silver dress and a silver belt with silver shoes and a headband of golden leaves and golden bangles. I feel really happy about my costume.

On Carnival day when I wake up I’m really excited because I know that today’s a special day, and when I eat my breakfast I eat it quickly so we can get to Carnival camp early. I put on my costume and someone puts make up on me and when we go on the road there’s crowds of people and they are looking at our costumes and watching us dance. It’s really scary at first but when you start getting in to it you get excited and start to enjoy it.

When I get home I go to bed happy.
