The crowds continued to pour into the Botanical Gardens on day three of LIME Creole in the Park as local reggae band Caribbean Vibes, Midnight Groovers, Claudette “CP” Peter and Taxik Band out off Antigua were set to the stage.

Day three started off with performances by the Cool Steel, Pointe Michel Cultural Group, Kros Vybes, and the Waitukubuli Dance Company.

Following the Waitukubuli Dance Company was Caribbean Vibes – one of Dominica’s more popular reggae bands. Their assorted brand of somewhat conscious roots-reggae music, but with hint of R&B dominated the stage and whatever else was going on around the park at the time.

Midnight Groovers was the final act of the night. The Kings of Cadence Music entertained the massive crowd with some sweet Cadance music – the type of performance that could only be described as “epic” in the eyes of foreigners and local patrons.

The third day of Creole in the Park was surprisingly nice, despite the heavy rain which carried slightly into the latter part of the evening. Unlike day one and day two – day three for us was probably the most laid back, partly because it was raining most of the afternoon. As far as bands we covered on day three, I’ve to admit we missed a couple acts we wanted to see due to the rain, so we decided to take it easy and just casually walk the grounds to see if there anything interesting going on.

Day three started with performance by the cultural group karifuna, Point Michel Cultural Group, Phase 5 Steel band, Free Joseph, and Nature Vibes -one of the upcoming Reggae bands in Dominica.
Next on the main stage was Soca artist ‘Ricky T’, who is taking the Caribbean by storm with his soca hit song ‘Pressure Bloom’. No rain was going to defer Dominicans from seeing Ricky T perform.

The seventh act on the main stage was ever-hot, ever-exciting TripleKay International, who despite the rain rocked the massive crowd with hits from their new album Colours and their growing catalogue of hits.

Day three was brought to an end by the Kings of Cadence Midnight Groovers, who captivated crowd with many hits from the pass. The large numbers of returning Dominicans were particularly fun of the Midnight Groovers, seeing that it was Cadence music they grew up listening too.
