It started with flotilla of canoes depicting the first inhabitants of Dominica, leaving the southern tip of Dominica and traveling to the Roseau Cruise Berth arriving just before 5am on January 1st, 2008. This was just one of the many cultural activities to mark the Dominicaâ€™s 30th anniversary of independence and to signal the start of Reunion WivÃ© – Dominica Reunion 2008, on the Dame Eugenia Charles Boulevard in the Capital city of Roseau.
The official ceremony ended just after 6:30am, but the boulevard remained alive with music and fun right throughout New Years Day; which brings to mind a sense of nostalgia and great sense of pride among all Dominicans. Here are some photos from the grand and spectacular extravaganza launch to the start of Dominica Reunion 2008 â€“ Reunion WivÃ©. Enjoy ❗
