Cultural Explosion Awaits Persons Who Attend Assou Square

Press Release:-  As preparations continue for the successful hosting of Assou Square 2020, all is in place for the cultural showpiece.

The event this year is supported by PCD Distribution, Busta Chill and telecommunications giant FLOW and is being hosted by the Castries Constituency Council.

Assou Square is a family oriented event featuring a wide variety of activities including  performances by Solo Groups, Steel Pan, Calypsonians, Masqueraders, Soca and Dennery Segment Artistes.

In addition, a children’s play zone with toys, bouncing castles, traditional games and cartoon characters will create the perfect ambience for children.

Assou Square 2020 will also feature the Terry & Eustace Bob Project with Terry and Eustace Bobb of the Ark Band of Ohio and the Xtreme Band.

The event will be confined to Bourbon, Brazil, Laborie and Micoud Streets respectively, while Constitution Park and the William Peter Boulevard, will be sites for side attractions.

The activity will run from 2pm – 11pm on January 1st and 2nd, 2020.

According to the Press and Communications Manager within the Office of the Mayor, Mr. Jason Hullingseed, “All is in place for the staging of this year’s event. The two-day event remains a family affair supported by all and we wish it continues along that trend. We believe that a lot more can and has to be done to keep the event alive, however we will work with what we have to keep St. Lucia’s premiere calendar event festival, a rich traditional commemoration hosted as a new year’s fair focused on children.”

 

Assou Square 2020 is set to create an experience which the entire family will love and enjoy.

  1. I have a problem with the cultural aspect af Assou Square our traditional aspects have gone down the drain.The site is bad ,and the experience is terrible,our old folks did their anual fare and get together.You cant do this in the city,in the traditional days,food was cooked on fires,on cold pots and grills.If we want to make our chidren modern idiots and ignore how our traditions were and how our great grand fathers had their get togethers,this is the way you are trying to change our history and our ancestral traditions shame to you all,The grills at Cul de Sac,and the stands operated during the 48 hours,day and night,those were the true days of Assou Square.Those were the traditions of our tribal ancestors.We tired of Chine trash,that has no respect for any traditions or ancestral history.
