DATE: Monday August 24, 2009


The Choiseul Village Council in collaboration with the Cultural Development Foundation (CDF) presents a GRAND SÉANCE LA WOZ to be held on Friday August 28, 2009, beginning from 7pm at the Old Fish Market in the village.

The activity will kick off with the Parade of all the Past Kings and Queens of La Woz in Choiseul and this will be followed by the Grand Séance, during which, the Kings and Queens for 2009 will be crowned.

It is the very first time that such an activity will be held in Choiseul and the Choiseul Village Council aims to bring together all La Woz groups in the district and to rekindle or capture the interest of residents in the La Rose Flower Festival celebrated on August 30, each year.

The Council hopes that this will be the catalyst for each community within the Choiseul district to form La Woz groups to meet the objectives of its Social and Cultural Committee.

On Sunday August 30, 2009, all La Woz groups around St. Lucia will congregate in Choiseul to celebrate the Flower Festival. The day will begin with a church service at the Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church and followed by performances by the various groups at the La Fargue Playing Field.

The Choiseul Village Council takes the opportunity to invite all persons to attend these activities.
