Asou Square bangs back!

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

For many Asou Square was any­thing but a drag. In fact the event has been hailed a suc­cess this year, with the po­lice re­port­ing an in­ci­dent-free cel­e­bra­tion, save for a few mi­nor skir­mishes.

This year Asou Square was held at the Derek Wal­cott Square where it had re­turned in 2015. Ac­tiv­i­ties started on the morn­ing of Fri­day Jan­uary 1st and ended on Sun­day Jan­uary 3rd. The three day event fea­tured “live” en­ter­tain­ment by lo­cal acts, toy booths, zip-line rides for chil­dren and the usual fare of food and drinks. Pris­tine white tents pur­chased by the City Coun­cil were used as vend­ing booths help­ing to up­lift the gen­eral look of the event.

How­ever, af­ter all was said and done, some were ask­ing “What were they think­ing?” when sev­eral men usu­ally as­so­ci­ated with ol mas dur­ing car­ni­val showed up for a mock fash­ion event. Fun for some but an eye-brow raiser for oth­ers as the men in drag did their thing.

For some it seems like it is their thing to dress in drag at car­ni­val time and now at

Christ­mas and New Year too!
