Thanks for your post. I don’t think they have finalized it yet. The Carnival is run by the Provincetown Business Guild you can find their website at .

They were supposed to give it out at the Holly Folly for the Boston Gay Men’s chorus but I haven’t heard anything yet.  People need to make plans and costumes!
