The Living Statues Festival has proven to be such a valuable addition to St. Maarten’s entertainment mix that there is already interest from the French side to take part in the event, in case it comes back next year.
And come back it should.
The festival gave locals a reason to come to town and it gave cruise tourists and other visitors an unexpected bonus.
That financing the event depends on subsidies from cultural foundations in the Netherlands is a mere challenge – not a stumbling block. But the local private sector and the government ought to embrace this festival as well – not only with their hearts, but also with their wallets.
The Living Statues Festival brought a unique flavor to an otherwise ordinary Saturday and Sunday in town.
We are looking forward to a repeat next year.
