Day one of LIME’s Creole in the Park is officially over as the Fanatik Band brought down the curtains with a fantastic performance to what is considered to be the largest turn-out on day one since the event started seven years ago.

Creole in the park (“An Explosion of Creole Food, Art & Craft, Creole Music and Culture“) was created from the need for a day event during Dominica’s National Independence Celebration, but now in its seventh year the family oriented four-day event has grown into an experience beyond words and day one was no exception.

Day one kicked-off with a strong cultural performance by the Giraudel Jing Ping Cultural Group as people started to assembled into the park. In the second act of the day was La Sel Diffewans, followed by a performance by Athie Martin and Friends – which was then followed by the official opening ceremony for LIME’s 2009 Creole in the Park.

In the final performance on day one, Fanatik Band brought down the house with a versatile performance.
