The Greiggs Heritage Festival which is being held as part of activities to celebrate National Heroes and Heritage Month, is expected to open to the public tomorrow Thursday March 9th .

President of the Greiggs Garifuna Council John Nero told NBC News that this year, 18 structures are being constructed, as the Council recreates a tribal and traditional community to educate Vincentians  and visitors about the country’s rich heritage and history.

He said the Festival is being held for five days leading up to National Heroes Day on March 14th.

Mr. Nero said their program will showcase three of the basic needs  of humans – food, clothing and shelter and they would also show how  Vincentians lived in the past.
