Day Three of LIME Creole in the Park was somewhat of a bittersweet occasion; whilst there were a few entertaining performances throughout day, it also marked the imminent end of Day 3 of CITP and with it one of the most disappointing final acts I’ve have experience since the event started.
The Day started off with performances by the Breezee’s Steel Pan, Karifuna, Machine Creole, and the Point Michel Cultural Group.
Following the Point Michel Cultural Group was Natural Vibes – one of Dominica’s Up-and-coming 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.
Next was the Waitukubuli Dance Theater who entertained the crowd with some creative dance, they were then followed by Freddie & Friends.
WCK and The Menace, The Kase & Smokie Cut continued the afternoon with their brand of lively and uptempo bouyon music had the crowd moving and shaking.
Peter Ram from Barbados was the final act of the day. With all the hype and notoriety revolving around Peter Ram, the huge crowd gather at the historic Botanical Gardens was expecting an interesting performance.
However, the Peter Ram lackluster recital of his popular songs was a disappointing and uninspiring way to headline a set, not least to close a day 3 of Creole in the Park. Sure, his performance may have been slick and wistful to some, but itâ€™s far from the big, intense conclusion that audiences have come to expect -dissatisfaction apparent in the dwindling crowd numbers. Stay turned to find out what happens on the final day of LIME Creole in the Park 2010.

Great write up on the show so far. Keep up the good work.
I am missing this year the festival, I wish I can see the performance of Point Michel Cultural Group and Waitukubuli Dance Theater – I really like their dances, which is rich with creole culture.
