Marah Walter is Miss Dominica 2008.
Thousands of fans were treated to the best of Dominica’s calypsos at the finals of the art form at the Windsor Park stadium. In the wee hours of Sunday morning, De Dice was crowned calypso king winning over nine other strong competitors.

Daddy Chess placed second with Scrunter and Hunter placing third and fourth respectively. This was the fourth time for De Dice, becoming only the third calypsonians to win four crowns. The other two were the Mighty Solo who won in 1973, 1975, 1976 and 1977, and Norman Cyril 'King NC' having won in 1982,1983,1985,and 1988 .

Dice for his part won in 2004, 2005 and 2006. On Friday, Marah Walter was crowned Miss Dominica 2008 as Mas Domnik 2008 celebrations kicked into high gear.

Seven Dominican beauties took part in the competition viewed by over 15 000 at the National stadium.

First runner up was Norrisa Newton with Marva Williams coming in as second runner up.

Marah, who is the daughter of agriculture minister Matthew Walter also won miss photogenic, miss intelligence, and best in evening wear.

Then on Saturday night will be the clash of the calypso giants as nine calypsonians try to unseat reigning calypso King De Hunter. In the hunt for the prestigious title are: three time winners De Dice and Scrunter along with Tarina, Observer, Sandy, The Web, The Sye, Karessah and Daddy Chess.

Daddy Chess has already won two titles in a row that of Soca Monarch and Stardom King of the Tent. His powerful rendition of ‘Forward we Go’ is a crowd favorite and is quickly taking hold all over the land.

The song appeals to Dominicans sense of patriotism and has done quite well against very strong competition from De Dice, Hunter and Scrunter.

Sunday will see the staging of the kiddies festival and the B-mobile Bouyon Festival/ King and Queen of the Band Competition.

Festivities will reach a grand finale with the street jumpup on Monday and Tuesday.

Meanwhile, there are growing appeals to move the traditional date for carnival for a later time in the year to allow for better participation and more time to prepare.
