National Carnival Commission (NCC) Chairman Winston “Gypsy” Peters was born on October 20, 1952 in the picturesque coastal community of Mayaro.

On Wednesday he spent his 69th birthday there, and focused on planting his favourite crops in his garden, including mangoes, avocadoes and watermelons. During his many feature addresses at various cultural events, Gypsy has always reminded people about his childhood and humble beginnings spent fishing and catching crabs. In fact, he often says, “Calypso rescued me from a life of catching crabs and picking up bottles for a living.”
