Anse De Mai St Peter’s Feast ‘bigger and better’ this weekend
All roads will lead to the north-east community of Anse De Mai this weekend as the Anse De Mai Development Committee hosts the Feast of St Peter’s.
Public Relations Officer of the Anse De Mai Development Committee, Mr Melvin George said that they have put together an action plan to make the feast bigger and better this year.
“This year we have decided to make the feast bigger than what it used to be in terms of entertainment and people coming to Anse De Mai on that particular weekend. So we have put a plan of action in place starting from Friday, July 16th to Sunday, July 18th”, said George.
A number of activities will be held this weekend in Anse De Mai beginning with a fish night on Friday, July 16th. Patrons can expect to get fish prepared in several forms on that night. The activities will continue on Saturday and Sunday.
“On Saturday we will begin at 2pm at the Anse De Mai port with a fair and that includes a raffle and boat rides. Later that evening to bring down the curtains, we have Midnight Groovers from 3pm followed by the Swinging Stars Band later that night. On Sunday we begin at 10am with a church service at the Anse De Mai Catholic Church, from there we’ll have the blessing of the boats at the Anse De Mai port. And from 2pm we’ll have a grand football soccerama at the playing field and that will include teams from Vielle Case, Thibaud, Portsmouth, Calibishie, Bense, Carib Territory and a team from the Saints,” said George.
The feast will culminate with a blockorama on Sunday evening, featuring the WCK band. Mr George encouraged Dominicans to support the event.
“Anse De Mai is located on the northeast coast of Dominica, just about 15 minutes away from Portsmouth. It’s a very nice place to come and enjoy yourself this weekend, so we are saying to people the place to be this weekend is at Anse De Mai, because that’s where the action is going to be!”
Sponsors for the event include Heineken Beer, SAT Telecommunications Ltd, Petro Caribe, National Petroleum, DBS Radio, LIME, Kairi FM and Parliamentary Representative for the area, Honorable Matthew Walter.
