Mary Simon and Jouvert Morning

 

In the heart of San Nicolas lies The Village where Bacchanal visited Mary Agatha Simon, who grew up in the days when Leonard Turner better known as Shu Shu Baby gave steelpan lessons to people like Edgar Connor and Naldo Brown. Mary organized her own Carnival group and participated with themes like ‘Fantasy Sailors’ bringing the Dutch Marines based on the island into Aruba’s Carnival fever. She even included visiting tourists in Aruba’s celebration by introducing a low-budget tourist section in her Carnival group. Not to forget that Mary has created great opportunities for children to participate with Carnival activities. Mary’s involvement with Carnival of Aruba and contribution has been most valuable. Mary’s birthday is right in the middle of the Carnival season on the 8th of February. Late at night in the Village a group of Trinidadians in an old traditional parade of musicians and dancers marched up in her street and stopped at her house to wish her happy birthday in recognition and appreciation. Mary came out in her nighty and joined the party in the street. This tribute to Mary Agatha Simon during Jouvert Morning is repeated every year since. And Mary dances in the streets of San Nicolas, in that parade that starts in the wee hours of the morning known as the Jouvert Morning. Mary Simon has 

 

become and will always be a legend in the history of Aruba’s Carnival. Mary’s surely is one of the names to be whispered when mentioning Jouvert Morning and Carnival.

 

Jouvert Morning up to 2020 is the only parade where people are free to join and dance. This parade was moved from the traditional last Carnival friday to another date allowing people to rest before the Grand Parade in San Nicolas.

 

Department of Culture Aruba extend his condolences to the family, friends, acquaintances and the Carnival People.
