Giraudel Flower Show returns

Preparations are in full gear to resume the Giraudel-Eggleston Annual Flower Show/Market Fair this year, after a five year absence.

The Flower Show site at Giraudel is being upgraded to create an Enchanted Garden Event carded for Friday, May 27 to Sunday 29, 2022.

The main activities during that weekend will be the formal opening ceremony and launch of the Flower Show/Market Fair to be held from 4.00 p.m on Friday, May 27, as part of the 2022 National Independence Celebrations, a local creole brunch on Saturday, May 28 and a garden tea party on Sunday, May 29.

According to organizers, daily features will be the Market Fair on the Flower Show Site in Giraudel and the Heritage Site in Eggleston and other designated areas along the roadside where various products made in the communities will be showcased and sold in and around the site.

“The 2.6 acres of land which has now become the permanent home for the Flower Show/Market Fair is intended to be a colourful and educational Botanic Centre where nationals and overseas tourists can visit and experience tranquility and beauty – “Nature in Paradise” a spectacular garden of flowers and other natural products of Dominica,” a release from the organizers states.

The release adds that as a prelude to the weekend activity of May 27 to 29, patrons will get the opportunity to view the lower portion of the Flower Show grounds on Easter Sunday, April 17, from 11:00 a.m. during a preview and Easter Brunch Sale.

“So we invite all to take a cool ride up to the scenic villages of Eggleston and Giraudel and enjoy the cool breeze, tranquility and hospitality of our twin communities,” the release concludes.

The Giraudel-Eggleston Annual Flower Show/Market Fair was last held in 2016.

    Hello, my people, I am happy and proud to read this about your work in our Villages–Giraudel & Egleston. I imagine that this is the undertaking of our younger people, who have decided to continue the work of those who were before you all–way to go!

    My only hope is that you will continue this work every year, not every 5 years. Remember that you can be guided by our God, most High; if you will allow Him to do so. Blessings for your work this year, coming from your fellow villager all the way from Toronto, Canada.

    For those of you who do not know, I used to be a very active person in this production. I would love to know that it continues to be successful by the Will of our God and for His glory.

    Finally! This event is long overdue. One of the best local events that was organized and designed by us. It’s high time to bring this back every year with some local calypso to boot. These events showcae some of what we have to offer and they will be a great tourist attraction. Fish night in Soufriere and Scotts Head also needs to come back.

    Wonderful that the flower show has returned and grow please.
    Hopefully we can ship flowers that is an industry that needs to grow.

    I am so happy about DOMLEC – now SOLAR for DOMLEC – we are into renewable energy. This is what we have in abundance SUN. – Have different – let us say three North Central and South SOLAR STATION or substations.

    We already have street lights with solar – My architecture professor when I said about solar powered streets lights in Dominica- she trying to send me to talk to Research Professors who get grants etc for them here- it is unheard of here in the United States. Big research university.

    Elizabeth, if is one thing for sure, Giraudel do have beautiful nice flowers, and some good looking women too!

    I think I going Giraudel to find me a beautiful woman to bring home with me; but then again since you say if I go home corrupted Roosevelt Skerrit and his puppets police waiting for me so they can arrest me and charge me with treason!
