 On August 6th 2017 at Crescent Drive Park, the MAA held its first ever 'Curry Q Festival'. We could not have asked for better weather or attendance that day. It was absolutely gorgeous. We estimated the crowd to be somewhere between 140 - 160.

The MAA provided the picnic crowd with a great day of entertainment. Keyboard player Suresh 'Bad Boy' Ramberran was terrific as usual and played music for all the guest singers - Shamina, Bob Balkaran, Khemraj Ramnarine, Ram 'Sockit' Mungroo and others. Our DJ gave us a very good mixture of chutney, bollywood, reggae and soca music.  Dan 'Dancer Boy' Sankar provided us with dancing entertainment right throughout the day.

A best tasting curry dish competition was held. The panel of judges consisted of
Jesse Bissoon, Sandra Sankar-Bailey, Ken Mungal and Kris Goolcharan.

.
The judges had a most difficult time selecting a winner since all the dishes were very
tasty. The eventual winners were - 1st place Beena & Vijay Goolcharan, 2nd place
Wayne 'The Indian Chef Boyardee' Sankar and 3rd place Savitri Singh.

We were treated to some great tassa drumming. This group performed several times
during the course of the afternoon and late into the evening. Job well done guys!

A hula hoop event was held and it was hilarious to the end. No one seemed to be
able to shake their waist in time to the hula hoop.

The kids who were involved in the Tug of War contest had a wonderful time.
This event was well received by the young ones as shown below.

The MAA would like to thank the many people involved with planning and
organizing this event, because without their assistance, this could not have been accomplished. We also want to thank everyone for coming out.
We eagerly look forward to next year's picnic.
