If you were planning to go to the Gelée Beach Festival in Les Cayes this year, I have bad news for you... the 2016 Gelée Beach Festival has been CANCELLED, The City mayor of Les Cayes said.

Gelee Beach - Les Cayes Haiti

KREYOL: Haiti - Fèt Gelée Aux Cayes CANCEL ane saa... Se sa Majistra Aux Cayes la fè konnen... Kisa ou panse de sa???

Each and every year for the past two decades, people from all over Haiti and the diaspora converge to Aux Cayes to celebrate Notre-Dame de l'Assomption, the patron saint of the city and to party hard at the Gelée beach festival... This year, there will be a Notre-Dame without Gelée...

According to news reports, the mayor of Aux Cayes did not give full details regarding why the festival was canceled, they only said the the beach will still be opened to those who wish to party. The mayor also said that next year's Genée festival will be renovated...
