The village of Anse La Raye is a small fishing village on the West Coast of the island approximately 20 minutes south of the Capital City of Castries. This small village rich in cultural history and Victorian architecture still depends mainly on fishing for its economic survival.
It is for this reason the community host an activity called Fish Fri every Friday except for Good Friday which is a religious holiday. Fish Fri simply means Fish Friday and it's a street party with a difference where the local catch by the fishermen of the village is prepared and served. All sorts of Seafood like conch, lobster, crab and whatever fresh fish is caught for the day is made available for purchase. All this while you listen and dance to the sweet sounds of live steel band, local band or DJ music right on the street.
As indicated above and the name suggest, this event is held only Fridays except for Good Friday which is a religious holiday.
