Pink 4 Life Carnival Group 2019
‘Pink 4 Life Carnival Group’ is founded by Antoni Gario who’s owner of the musical band of ‘Le Groove’. Creatively multitalented Antoni Gario with a passion for the soca musical genre has founded his own first Carnival group by the name of ‘Pleasers & Teasers’. A group with the signature of the soca type of music provided by his musical band of ‘Le Groove’. Besides in music and Carnival Antoni has created a reputation for himself by always fighting for what he’s believed to be the right of the people of San Nicolas. The group and band has always had good and faithful sponsors.
Except for when on Aruba the worldwide economic set backs were also felt and big sponsors started to pull back their sponsorships in 2017. That year in 2017 Antoni with his group and band decided to join the ‘Empire Carnival Group’ in the parades. Then in 2018 Antoni changed the name of the group to that of ‘Pink 4 Life’ with his musical band of ‘Le Groove’ to come with a fresh start.
At the ‘Torch Parade 2019’ the group of ‘Pink 4 Life’ with musical band of ‘Le Groove’ closed the parade with 2000 participants. The biggest group in ‘Torch Parade 2019’. For the Grand Parades ‘Pink 4 Life participated by the theme of ‘The Money Team’ featuring Aruba’s paper money designs.
