Titiwi Festival On This Weekend
Titiwi lovers will satisfy their taste buds this weekend as the annual Titiwi Festival will be on Sunday September 30th, after an absence last year as a result of the Matieu Dam overflowing its banks.
Parliamentary Representative for the St. Joseph Constituency, Honourable Kelvar Darroux says, this will be a great opportunity for fish vendors, and small businesses to benefit from which in turn will aid in the growth of the economy of Layou.
Mr. Darroux added that moving forward we will see the community of Layou progressing, especially as it relates to the education and the overall development.
It is very important that persons island-wide attend the Titiwi Festival which has been going on for the past 4 to 5 years, so they can help the economy of Layou grow while they indulge in their favourite titiwi dish.
This festival allows people to set up a small business, which while providing them with an income they will also help the economy of their community.
Mr. Darroux says that the income generated from the festival also aides in the area of education, as a scholarship was given to a student of the community by the Layou Improvement Committee which will continue annually.
He says this could only be done with the success of the Titiwi Festival hence the reason why he is urging all to attend to make it continuously successful, and an event patrons will look forward to each year.
The event is expected to be a whole day activity of recreational in addition to eating titiwi prepared in all forms possible.
