An event which has been on the shelves for nine years is back on the books.
The Giraudel Flower Show, put on by the Giraudel Flower Group has re-emerged and will be staged on May 19, 2013.
The announcement was made this week at the opening ceremony of the newly constructed venue that will house the show.
The lack of a proper venue has been one of the main reasons for the 9-year halt.
Spokesperson of the Giraudel/Eggleston Flower Group, Elizabeth Alfred, said the new building will become a tourism venue and used to stage the annual event.
She said the building will be used as a botanical centre to cultivate rare flowers and a training ground for young people.
“We are involved in a small way in the community tourism program and we are hoping that this can be a stopover. I realise the potential of that kind of business in Dominica. This is a long term investment,” she said.
