Huge Crowd as Part of Creole Day Street Parade
People from all walks of life joined in the Creole Day Street Parade on Friday, October 26th.
Four schools participated this year, including the St. Luke’s Primary, St. Martin Primary and the Convent Preparatory Schools.
We caught, Mrs. Annette Bates, the 2012 Madam Wob Dwiyet, who was excited about being a part of the parade this year.
It was her first time participating in the Madam Wob and she enjoyed every moment of it.
Mrs. Marvelyn Robinson has been part of the parade for the past seven years, and says it is a vibrant display of the Dominican culture and we should take pride in it.
She says we should embrace our culture and share it with everyone that we meet.
One of the few men in the crowd was there to show an example for this daughter. He says more men should take up this role, especially when it comes to our culture.
He says over the years the parade has matured, and it shows a greater level of patriotism among Dominicans.
One of the organizers of the parade, Ms. Pearle Christian, says she is very impressed with the amount of young people taking part in the Independence Celebrations this year.
