Parry also praised the many Nevisians who reside abroad and came back home in their numbers to celebrate Culturama.
The Premier also said there were many persons who have not been on Nevis in many years, and commended him on all the positive programs and projects that his government has pursued, and which are manifested on the ground.
“I received excellent reports from many persons about the Police Force, and I congratulate them and the sanitation officers who came out and cleared Charlestown, and by the time the next morning came, the place was spic and span”, said Premier Parry.
He further intimated that work on Culturama 2013 will start in October 2012 with marketing strategies, a plan for the calendar of events, fund-raisers, and talks with potential sponsors.
“Yes, Culturama 2012 was a grand success, but I know 2013 will be even better,” proclaimed Premier Parry.
He also congratulated the Police Force, who he said “did an extremely good job”.
“This year’s Culturama was incident-free, the attendance was extremely well, and the shows were of top quality,” the Premier said.
Culturama 2012 was observed under the theme: “Our Identity, Our Survival – 2K12 Culturama Festival”
