Mission/Profile


Engine Room Section Inc. ,was founded in 1994 for the sole purpose of bringing back the “old time” way of masquerading, or as Trinidadian's would say “playing Mas”, into the Annual Caribbean/American Carnival in the City of Boston. With this old school theme in mind a few of the fellas and gyals got together and brought the original form of costuming, Mud Mas commonly known as ole Mas, onto the Boston Carnival stage.
