The event, launched by the Ministry of Tourism’s regional office on northern Haiti, began on Friday on the Boulevard du Cap in Cap-Haitien. This year’s festival, focused at Camp Louise, included a performance by T-Micky, while several Haitian artists received awards, including Daniel Lariviere, Nicole Levy and Daniel Fils-Aime. The festival is the latest put forth by Haiti as a way to grow tourism, particularly at the regional level.
