Hosts for the Mardi Gras event at the Kaibo resort this year are asking people to ”Let their hair down but not their bikinis’ when attending Cayman’s answer to the Rio Carnival Wednesday.
Kaibo encourages responsible partying, and asks partygoers to be mindful of the laws on baring of body parts, under age drinking and drink driving.
Kaibo has arranged for three boats to run round trips from SafeHaven to Kaibo starting at noon on Wednesday, with the last boat leaving Kaibo at 1am returning everyone safely back. The wait for a boat should be approximately 15 minutes. Kaibo encourages people to use a taxi service to get home from the boat dock if they have been drinking.
The organisers of the Mardi Gras event at Kaibo have met with the police and support their requests for the event.
Area Commander, Chief Inspector Richard Barrow said ‘We’re not out to spoil people’s fun and we want those attending to have a good time and enjoy themselves – but we do want them to do it safely, responsibly and decently. We have been meeting with organisers of the event and representatives from the Department of Children and Family Services who had some concerns following last years event, and have plans in place to ensure that no breach of the peace or other public order offences, marine offences or traffic violations are committed either at the event, prior to it or afterwards. The hosts have put in place measures to ferry people to and from the event and taxis will be on hand for the return journey so there is no reason to get behind the wheel at the end of the day. And be warned, if you do drink and drive we will catch you.’
