Hundreds of St Lucians converged on Castries from December 31, 2017 to January 2, 2018 for the annual Assou Square festivities. The event this year was supported by telecommunications giant FLOW and was hosted by the Castries Constituency Council. The event remains a family friendly affair with attractions for young and old. Assou Square has been St. Lucia’s premiere calendar event festival, a rich traditional commemoration hosted as a new year’s fair focused on children. This year’s event featured a variety of attractions and activities, including kweyol cuisine in the William Peter Boulevard, face painting and bouncing castles for children, trolley train ride and a heavy line up of entertainment. Organizers say Assou Square 2018 was a success.
