The staging of the Fond St Jacque Carnival which takes place this weekend is expected to stimulate economic activity in the impoverished community.

That’s according to the head of the Carnival committee there Sandra Prospere who informed that this is not the first time such an event is being hosted there.

The activity will include a carnival queen pageant slated for Saturday evening and a jouvert and parade of the bands on Sunday.

Ms Prospere notes that while the event has received the support of sections of the community, organizers of the cultural event are facing a challenge in convincing vendors to invest.
