Dominica Import Export Agency (DEXIA) has announced the date for ‘Market Day with a Difference’, a traditional observation of the Independence season.

This year’s festivities, marking Dominica’s 45th Independence celebration, will be held at the Roseau Market on Saturday, October 28.

Things will kick off with a welcome ceremony, then a tour by government officials and members of the public.

The colorful celebration will center on the participating vendors as well as the marketplace.

    I must say that this is probably the laziest and most unimaginative independence theme ever.

    DNO, Being in the Independence season, I love hearing the lovely creole songs. There is one I love hearing very much. A remix done by LOBSTER and TRADIBELLE. Can you or anyone tell me the name of that song? I need to purchase a copy. Thanks!

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 1 Thumb down 15
