Saint Lucia Celebrates 36 years of Independence

Islandwide there is a sense of national pride as St. Lucians prepare to celebrate our nation’s 36th independence on 22 February.  During this time, the island’s elegant national flag is flown at every street corner.  Cultural tradition is re-enacted as students prepare for the annual parade to display the heritage, history and development of this island state.  This year many of these activities will be taken to the south of the island as nationals celebrate this special day with colourful parades, food festival, concerts and live music.

The team members at Barefoot Holidays St. Lucia take time from their busy schedule to immerse themselves in the week long celebration and to take along with them clients who would like to experience this wonderful day in the life of St. Lucia.
