PRESS RELEASE: Courts (Saint Lucia) Limited Sponsors the National Festival of Light Celebration

Castries, St. Lucia, 14-12-2021: Courts (Saint Lucia) Limited teamed up with the Castries Constituency Council and the Cultural Development Foundation, to signal the official start of St. Lucian Christmas by lighting up the City of Castries at the National Festival of Light.

Festival of Light is an annual observance, which celebrates our Saint Lucian culture and Christmas traditions through cultural performances and displays such as masquerade and twenty toes. Public spaces throughout the City of Castries are adorned with Christmas lights and turned on during the Festival.

This year’s festival moved from traditional celebrations at the Derek Walcott Square, to a virtual observance in keeping with COVID-19 protocols.

Courts (Saint Lucia) Limited sponsored the lighting of Constitution Park this year.  OECS Brand Manager for Courts, Ms. Melissa Marius said, “Festival of Light is a staple for Saint Lucia, as is Courts, and we are honored to be a part of the celebration of the start of Saint Lucian Christmas. We have been working closely with the Castries Constituency Council to assist with the safety and overall beautification of Castries and saw this year’s festival as the prime opportunity to help revive the City and drive home the Spirit of Christmas.”

The Christmas campaign at Courts this year is themed See the Good and under that campaign, the Company plans to spread cheer to customers and charitable organizations throughout the OECS through donations and charitable acts. “We are offering our customers so many ways to win this Christmas with our 12 Days of Christmas promotion for all customers who shop and our Wish Maker Campaign aimed at gifting loyal customers and supporting charitable causes.” Marius added.
