Chairperson of the CFP says Calabash Festival has Potential to Bring Significant Economic Benefits

The chairperson of the Calabash Festival Planning Committee says the weeklong event has the potential to bring significant economic benefit to Montserrat.

Florence Griffith Joseph says various groups benefit each year such as art and craft vendors, food vendors, and guest houses, among others.

Mrs. Joseph, who has been organizing the festival since its inception, believes the calabash fruit itself can be a key source of revenue for persons.
