YOUR HEALTH COMES FIRST

The current COVID-19 health crisis showed a disproportionate burden on Black communities and other communities of color. While health and nutrition disparities by race have been known for quite some time, it is imperative we as a community do something about it. For the month of October Sesame Flyers will focus on community health. Join us on our social media platforms as we share health challenges, tips, recipes, and resources for you and your family, culminating in a Caribbean Health Walk.

KEEPING THE SPIRIT OF CARNIVAL ALIVE!

We want to thank everyone who helped make Sesame Carnival’s Labor Day celebration one that was safe and a huge success! The day was filled with musical artists, dancers, drummers, steel pan, a rhythm section, models in costume and of course, great music by top Djs. What made this day even more special was our capacity to reach people from all over the world. Having a virtual carnival allowed us to reach more people, we look forward to incorporating this element to our road experience moving forward.
