Haiti Celebrates Carnaval des Fleurs – Caribbean Journal


Ahead of the event, Haiti President Michel Martelly said the “great cultural event” was an “opportunity for Haiti to sell a better image of itself and attract tourists.”He said the progress over the festival since 2012 would have a “positive economic impact on the commercial sector in particular.”Last year, approximately 22,000 people came to Haiti during the 10-day period that included the Carnival of Flowers, according to figures from Haiti’s Tourism Ministry. via Carnaval des Fleurs
