Highly advertised in the media everyday, the authorities have high expectations out of the event “Carnaval de Flic en Flac, Maurice” in the context of the Mauritius Shopping Fiesta aimed at attracting tourists into the island during this period. To have a better international visibility, Mauritius even sponsored the Miss England 2012 competition and invited Miss France and Reunion 2012 to the island. There’s even an official Carnaval anthem (below) and several competitions being held.
The official launch of the Mauritius Shopping Fiesta is being held at Bagatelle Mall of Mauritius today while the Carnaval de Flic en Flac will take place on Sunday, 1st July at Flic en Flac, of course. It is important to mention that several (huge) prizes have been put into play while several companies (hotels, shops…) are offering discounted prices during the period of 29 June to the 5 August 2012.
Good. Now what are your thoughts about this initiative?
