Already 30 years since the city of Alcibiade Pommeyrac presents its carnival. 
It's a tradition. Through its creativity, its disguises, its craftsmanship,
 the pride it gives and the hospitality of its residents, the carnival of Jacmel has become 
an intangible national heritage. And, every year, they are thousands to make the trip, 
coming from all the departments of the country and even from the diaspora to participate 
in this great cultural event. Regardless of the difficult socio-political conditions.
 "It's an annual event. No chaos or political problem or even a “peyi lòk” could prevent 
the holding of the carnival”, explains Macky Kessa, mayor of the city of Jacmel.
“It is true that everything is going badly in Port-au-Prince, but Jacmel is still alive,
 the same for the other departments of the country. The police, justice, hospitals are still 
functioning. We live in Jacmel and this 30th edition of the carnival is a way for us to prove 
it,” he continues.

Accompanied by a permanent committee for already 5 years, the mayor of Jacmel is very 
confident about the success of this cultural and popular atmosphere. When he granted 
the interview to Ticket, he was unable to say whether the city would be entitled to the 
presence of musical groups from Port-au-Prince. "It is not only up to the town hall, the 
government also has a say in facilitating their presence", explains the first citizen 
of the city who took the opportunity to ask all the actors concerned to look into the 
situation of Martissant. . “We would like to see everyone at this year's carnival. 
In addition to people from the great South of the country, we also hope for revelers 
from the North and especially from the West. But for that, the authorities must focus on 
security in Martissant and provide a solution, ”insists Macky Kessa.
