Batabano kids to kick off the carnival

| 14/04/2009

(CNS): Anyone looking for a break from election fatigue may find the Cayman Carnival Batabano could be just the ticket. Ready to hit the streets with all its colour, splendor, vibrancy and multi-national mixture organizers have announced that this year’s festivities get underway with the Junior Batabano Street Parade and Family Fun Day on Saturday 25 April.

Carnival chair Donna Myrie-Stephen said was pleased that the community has embraced this family style display of Cayman Carnival for the youth of our country. “With the growing number of private and public schools taking part in colourful costumes it really gives the young people a dedicated opportunity to shine during their parade through downtown George Town,” she added.

The event offers young people the chance to enjoy every part of the celebration from creativity and construction of costumes to the display of themes combined in music and dance. At the conclusion of the Junior Parade, the Family Fun Day festivities continue on the lawns of the Glass House.

The parade starts at 3pm from the lawns of the Government Administration Building (Glass House). For more information such as parade routes and a complete calendar of events log on to:
