George Bell named the King Momo of the Punta Cana Carnival 2024

Punta Cana, DR.- George Bell was chosen this Saturday as King Momo of the 15th edition of the Punta Cana Carnival, an initiative of the Puntacana Group.

Bell, who played in Major League Baseball in the 1980s and 1990s, was the first Major League player to hit three home runs in an Opening Day game.

Bell cruised down the boulevard in a collector car driven by Frank Rainieri, founder of the Puntacana Group. “I am very happy for this distinction, thank you very much,” said the former baseball player.

This distinction is awarded to prominent and influential national figures who inspire Dominican society with their work and, in turn, promote art, culture and sports.

King Momo’s cape and crown were designed and created by the plastic artist Luis Rivas. The suit stands out for the simplicity of its lines, highlighting the colors red and black, resulting in a majestic staging.

Rivas is known as a creator of carnival fantasies, standing out in the troupes, floats and costumes for beauty queens that represent the Dominican Republic.

Several personalities have been chosen as Momo Kings of the different editions of the Punta Cana Carnival since its inception. Among them are Oscar de la Renta, Dagoberto Tejeda, Milly Quezada, Eddy Herrera, Juan Marichal, among others.

More than just a tourist spectacle, the Punta Cana Carnival offers a vibrant immersion into the heart and soul of Dominican culture. This annual celebration explodes with a kaleidoscope of colors, where meticulously crafted costumes and masks become living works of art. Lively music fills the air, pulsating with infectious merengue rhythms and soulful bachata melodies, leaving no footsteps in its wake.
