A bit of colour and glamour was added to downtown George Town last week when Batabano masqueraders, including Miss Cayman Stacey-Ann Kelly visited leading Cayman Islands corporate entities to hand deliver invitations for the Cable & Wireless Cayman Carnival Batabano Masquerade Fete.
Taking place on Thursday 5 May, this corporate event allows members of the business community to enjoy a champagne reception, Caribbean buffet and headline performance by Byron Lee and the Dragonaires, the Caribbean’s No. 1 soca band.
‘The Thursday Masquerade Fete at Pedro St James is an important part of the carnival celebrations,’ comments Donna Myrie, Chairperson of Batabano. ‘It is an opportunity for the business community to come together and enjoy the unique atmosphere of Caribbean Carnival and participate in this important cultural tradition.’
Miss Cayman Stacey-Ann Kelly and Marina Coleman of the Saschay Bon Mas Band visited Ogier and Boxall’s, a major sponsor of the children’s carnival, Deutsche Bank, which is donating the second prize of $2,000 for the International Song Competition and Queensgate Bank, which has purchased a corporate table for the Masquerade Fete.
Corporate tables and tickets for this special event are available by calling Olivia Scott, 916-7658, Lana Cayasso, 916-4331, Donna Myrie, 916-1740 or Julie Hutton, 926-1598.
The festivities for this year’s Batabano begin this weekend with the Cable & Wireless Batabano International Song Competition at the Mango Tree Saturday and the Cable & Wireless Broadband Poker Run at Royal Palms on Sunday 1 May.
