A goat pageant is one of the many activities that will form part of the first-ever Goat Festival in the community of La Plaine on Saturday.
The event, which aims to highlight the work of goat-rearing farmers in the area, kicks off at 11:00 am with musical entertainment from the Kubuli Big Truck.
Activities for the day will include a Lapo Kabwit drumming display from the two major Lapo Kabwit groups in the community, a goat race and a goat pageant.
Festival attendees will be able to purchase fresh goat meat and enjoy curry goat dishes with rice, ground provisions and peas plus at least another dozen goat dishes.
There will be discussions on how future farmers can expand their markets and any technical assistance and resources they can access in selling goat milk to local and regional customers and in making goat milk cheese, ice cream and fudge.
The festival will also include a regional Soca, R& B, Calypso, Creole and Bouyon Music showdown set to feature visiting teen talent Of St Lucia “Ricky Boy.”
“Ricky Boy” has received major branding support since his arrival on island and is expected to perform a 45 minute repetoire of Soca, Creole and R& B Music all of which were originaly written by him and produced by J Records in St Lucia.
Digital Vybez and Ncore Band are also expected to perform.
