Crowd at Creole in the Park

LIME Dominica is on schedule for another successful staging of its flagship Creole in the Park (CITP) event during the Independence festivities. LIME’s General Manager Jeffrey Baptiste says the anticipation of the public is an indication that Dominicans and visitors alike place significant value on LIME’s Creole in the Park.

“We are aware that the public has been inquiring about this year’s event and we want to give patrons the assurance that LIME will be staging the eleventh edition of the LIME Creole in the Park this year”.

According to the General Manager the CITP continues to be a place where people from our communities showcase their local talent.

“This year’s event is focused around the 2013 CITP’s theme “Celebrating our local talents, cuisines and art-forms. We are always happy to give opportunities to our people to share their artistic, culinary and entertainment talents and therefore we continue to produce this event with them in mind. ”

The official media launch of this year’s LIME CITP is scheduled for Thursday September 26th at the LIME Technical & Engineering Complex at River Estate, Canefield. At Thursdays launch the artists forming part of this year’s event will be unveiled. Mr. Baptiste says patrons can look forward to an interesting twist to this year’s line-up.

“Our patrons are in for a treat this year which will take them on a trip down memory lane, while at the same time providing a welcome opportunity to appreciate more from our island”.

Mr. Baptiste is also promising the public another professionally organized event bringing together all the elements of Dominica’s culture including music, cuisine and arts & craft at the Botanical Gardens from October 21st to 24th, 2013.

The LIME CITP continues to contribute to the overall economy of Dominica as gate receipts of the event are made available as contributions towards the maintenance of the Botanic Gardens managed by the Forestry, Parks and Wildlife Division. The National Cultural Council is also a major beneficiary of the event as contributions are made to development of the island’s culture.  . The LIME Creole in the Park will run from 12 noon to 7pm daily.

    oh none sense. lime is just trying to soften their fall seeing that all they cld provide this yr are local bands. since citp started the launching was done loongg before the event, with foreign bands. this yr allu cldnt secure foreign bands, and now allu want to come with that sticking to local ish so the public will not be too harsh when allu only provide local entertainment.

    if ‘sticking to the theme’ had been in effect all along y its only this week y’all wanna launch? stop take dominicans for fools. after all negotiations with foreign bands fell thru y’all decided to go local. im all for promoting local, but dont act like that was the focus all along. be honest, cuz local bands wld have been easier to book, and the line-up wld have been out loonngg ago. im not even hearing hype about citp this yr. c’mon lime. come better than that

      silly person, Lime has been told that they should not compete with the wcmf. this event is geared towards a different audience and by bringing in foreign artists , persons will not want to go to the big show. makes sense to me

    “Our patrons are in for a treat this year which will take them on a trip down memory lane, while at the same time providing a welcome opportunity to appreciate more from our island”. For some reason in that quoted statement i just feel that is there is no international artist. Trip down memory lane is the “first serenade band” and appreceiate more from our island speaks for itself,other years u’d hear about “surprise artist” let’s wait n see!

    This thing,CITP, is fast becomming DE Relavant activity around the Independant celebration.
    That wcmf is slowly loosing steam,and nothing is being plowed back into the country from wcmf,like CITP is doing.

        selling something cheap does not necessarily mean that it has to be mediocre. LIME sounds like they are taking they “cheapest-artist” way out which does not go well for such products. they have had quality CITP’s for the past years all because they have maintained and invested in high quality acts that keep ppl coming. nevertheless, i feel that LIMe knows that regardless of who is on the line up persons will turn out as the event is well timed bringing much entertainment to the public during the creole week which would otherwise be dull. its just fishy that they are holding back the line-up so close to the show.
