The Creole Festival, a celebration of our culture in all its depths is here once again and all is being set to transform Victoria, the capital of the Creole world, into a colourful and vibrant town.
The committee has also proposed to decorate buildings such as the Liberty House, Independence House, National Cultural Centre, Oceangate House, Development Bank of Seychelles, Pirates Arms and Natural History Museum with large drapes of blue, yellow, red, white and green- the five colours of our national flag. Our national flag will also be used as part of the décor for the town.
Other areas in town where decorations will be put up are the 5th June Avenue and the Francis Rachel street.
Owners of buildings in town are also being encouraged to decorate their premises and join in the Creole Festival ambiance.
Alain St.Ange, the Seychelles Minister responsible for Tourism and Culture said that everyone can play a part to show that they are proud Seychellois as the country moves closer to the official opening ceremony of the 29th Edition of their Creole Festival. “Do not be ashamed to show that you are part and parcel of the Creole Culture that makes our islands what they are today” said Minister St.Ange.
