MUSIC and FOOD - The music is infectious - a joyous mixture of Caribbean and Creole rhythms. The street stalls sell a wide variety of delicious foods, including fresh locally caught fish, and grilled jerk chicken.
RUM PUNCH - There is plenty of sweet stuff too and much imbibing of alcohol - with chilled beers and the famous rum punch on sale along with a dizzying variety of wicked cocktails. Eat, drink and strut your stuff till late, every Friday at Gros Islet! Then take a taxi home :) only 10 mins home to Villa Valerie.
