Thousand of music lovers packed the Botanical Gardens Thursday for the forth and final day of the 2009 LIME Creole in the Park.

It’s been an amazing four days of Creole Food, Art & Craft, Creole Music and Culture, there were a few challenges this year including the weather.

The final day kicked-off with performances by Genesis Steel Pan, Karifuna Cultural Group, Nature Boys Band, and Dominican reggae artist Harry Mo.

Following Harry Mo was DJ Midian and then the long anticipated performance by the TripleKay International, who didn’t disappoint their huge fanbase who came out to support. Next on stage was Ziggy Rankin alongside Tempo.

As I concluded our coverage of Creole in the Park 2009, I think it’s fair to say that everyone who came out enjoyed myself and had a good time sharing great experiences.

To all the Dominicans in the diaspora and foreigners, who were unable to be here to share the fun and excitement – I hope our coverage of Creole in the Park 2009 helped in anyway. With that said, I encourage you to continue visiting Dominica-Weekly.com for more coverage of Dominica’s 31st Independence Celebrations.
