In this issue, we feature several successfully hosted events organized by the DDA and other industry partners, which showcased the Waitukubuli National Trail and other well-known hikes. Dominica’s second annual Nature Island Challenge, which was held in April, attracted four teams, both international and local. Activities organized for the first time ever included an international trail hike run called The One Run–Dominica, and the annual Caribbean Trail Run. Participants came from the Caribbean and European markets.

Other highlights herein include the second annual Dominica Tour of the Triskell Regatta, which took place at the Cabrits National Park. This year, Dominica was represented and captured 3rd place in its category. A noticeable increase in patronage at this year’s Jazz ‘n Creole offerings indicates that this event is here to stay! We are grateful to these six properties for hosting well-attended fringe events: The Champs; Reggae Lounge; Evergreen Hotel; Anchorage Hotel; Fort Young Hotel; and Riverside Bar & Grill. This wonderful week of musical festivities culminated at Cabrits National Park, where renowned local and international artistes offered superb entertainment to conclude the 5th annual Jazz ‘n Creole.
