City Council Supports Carnival At Former Morse Cutting Tools Site

 

tsm – file

The New Bedford City Council has unanimously approved a motion to allow the Cape Verdean Recognition Day Parade Committee to sponsor a carnival at the former Morse Cutting Tools site. 

The Committee says the carnival would serve as a fund-raiser, and help cover the costs of their annual July parade. 

The Mayor however, rejected the request last year, and has yet to approve it this year, citing parking and security concerns. 

Council President Bruce Duarte says carnivals and festivals are held all over the city every year, so what’s the problem with south central?
