Crowd at Creole in the Park

LIME Creole in the Park suffered a somewhat poor turnout on Day 1, and Day 2 got off of a similarly slow start.

But with the Midnight Groovers, Swinging Stars, and the Carib Calypso Connection featuring some Dominica’s most popular calypsonians to hurrah on the main stage later in the day, day 2 ramped up to an awesome high note.

A sunny to partly cloudy weather forecast seemed to keep many people home until mid-afternoon.

Shades of Green, Midnight Groovers, and Marie Claire Giraud all had to work with the crowds they were given, but thankfully the park began to fill as Swinging Stars took the stage.

One of my favorite acts on Day 2 was the Carib Calypso Connection featuring Bobb, Soul Puss, Observer, Tasha P, Sye, Hunter, Prospser, Daddy Chess, Dice, and Karessah. Fans responded in kind to the favorite calypsonians, whose energy and interaction kept the crowds hot while the temperature began to drop.

Like you, dear readers, I can’t wait to see what happens on Day 3, with WCK, The Menace, The kase & Smokie Cut, and Peter Ram from Barbados all on the lineup is definitely expected to draw a huge crowd.

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.

Later, on stage was the young and excited XS Groove band, they were then followed by DJ Flip who warmed-up the massive crowd for the Bouyon Hustlers; the MFR Band out off Portsmouth, and then ever-energetic Sakis Lapo kabwit out off Grandbay serenaded the crowd with traditional drum rhythms. In the final performance on day one, Fanatik Band brought down the house with a versatile performance.
