Of the many activities taking place over the Independence Season, the National Gala held in the Botanic Gardens is a favourite. While many of the national cultural competitions had been cancelled due to Tropical Storm Erika, this year’s event boasted one improvement – a better stage!
There were some wonderful performances, highlights included:
- Convent High School Coral Speech “I Love You Still” (featuring ‘signing’ for the hearing impaired)
- A Fashion Show of Creole Dress through the years
- Karifuna performing Kalinago drumming and dancing
- Traditional Dancing – Bele, Quadrille, and more.
