The annual feast day of St Martin de Porres RC community, Morne Diable, Penal took on a new, dynamic dimension this year with a week-long celebration in the village branded ‘Mon D Fest’.
The week was launched with a grand street parade which showcased the many aspects of village life, especially the talents and creativity of the people. The parade started at the Morne Diable Junction and journeyed through the village to the savannah where a concert put on by participants made even more visible the multitude of talents that reside here. Morne Diable is best known for its victories in the Prime Minister’s Best Village competition.
One would have thought that it was carnival in November as the Best Village costumes, moko jumbies and colourful array of people walked through the community singing and dancing, portraying community life and the bond that welds the people together.
