The Landings Resort & Spa recently treated guests to its in-house Carnival parade dubbed “Colours in Motion”.


Held on Friday, July 22, a couple of days after Saint Lucia Carnival wrapped up, the event drew nearly three dozen guests to the property’s lawn where they joined staffers and were treated to pulsating soca music, drinks, and dance.

The partiers even got a special performance from former Power Soca Monarch, Ezra, who had them sing along and dance to some of his popular hits.


Sannicia Sammy, Assistant General Manager, The Landings Resort & Spa, said “Colours in Motion” was birthed by Aunty Cathy and Juan, the Coordinators of the Kids Club. “They created the name, concept, and costumes, and brought the event to life,” Sammy said. “This was the first time that The Landings has hosted such an event, and we will say it was a great success. We saw children as young as three years old, teenagers, parents and associates having a great time.”


Sammy noted that some of the hotel’s guests came to Saint Lucia to participate in several of the national Carnival events, including the fetes and the Parade of the Bands, and expressed that they had an excellent time. Guest who missed out deserved a sample of the Carnival atmosphere, she said. “So our in-house parade targeted especially those guests who would not have gotten a chance to do so, but wanted to get a taste of Saint Lucian culture,” she said.


Sammy said The Landings hosts events for the various Saint Lucian celebrations and would continue to do so, as it is important, we represent and showcase the Saint Lucian culture. 

“We’re trying to recognise and celebrate these festivals in Saint Lucia so that all guests can taste what Saint Lucia has to offer,” said Sammy. “By doing so, we encourage them to go out into the communities and have an authentic experience of these festivals on a wider scale e.g., La Rose Flower Festival, Creole Heritage, etc.”


Meanwhile, Cathy Andrews, Supervisor for Kids Club, known as Aunty Cathy too, especially the children, said she, too, was excited about the atmosphere that the event created. “We love seeing the children and families together having fun. This is why we are here, to contribute to the creation of memories for our guests.”

With all the years of experience, both Cathy and Juan have together, they are a force to reckon with. They have created a calendar full of fun-filled events and activities for The Landings Kids Club and this is only one of them.

“We came up with the idea to host this event and ran with it. It was a lot of planning, but we made this activity a success. It was great seeing the children and their parents having fun.”
