The Castries Constituency Council (CCC) has said that thousands of persons who are expected to attend this year’s Assou Square can expect a cultural explosion.
Castries Mayor, Peterson Francis, observed that for decades the event has been one of the Island’s premiere activities, celebrating rich culture and folklore.
He said the CCC is bent on improving the ambience.
According to Francis, the event has always been a family affair focussed on children
“In 2019 it will be no different, he stated.
Assou Square will run from 10.00 a.am – 11.00 p.m on January 1&2, 2019 at Derek Walcott Square.
The CCC, which is organising the event, noted that traditionally the activity had been built around the old-style cuisine, children’s toys, rides and displays and cultural entertainment.
The council has promised great variety this year, including the presence of cartoon characters, face painting, bouncing castles for children, masquerade, trolley train rides and lots of entertainment.
