Blues take over Cimboco

The twice annual, ‘Cimboco Family Fun Day’ at the Marquee Center was a huge hit for kids young and old on Saturday, 4 October.

Once again, Cimboco Café was pleased to have the Cayman Islands Blue Iguana Recovery Program reaffirm its partnership in the growing success of the event, with a great day of carnival and educational games, fun-filled food booths, face painting and more.

Old fashioned games involving luck and some skill included a hole-in-one mini golf, a football pass, a glass-bottle-ring toss, darts and balloons, knock-down-the-cans and a ping-pong ball toss for fish.

The youngest in the group enjoyed plucking a duck from the pond and a gone fishing game so everyone took home pockets full of prizes.

The Cayman Island Fire Department again showed its community spirit by bringing out one of its shiny tanker trucks and eagerly showed off the lights, sirens and capabilities to the future fireman of the Cayman Islands.

A huge jump and slide gave everyone a nice workout.

The Blue Iguana Recovery Program’s Samantha Hicks and wardens John Marotta and Cameron Richardson along with all the wonderful and talented team of volunteers created fun and educational presentations and activities, such as displays of native plants, colouring and sidewalk chalk events, pin the tail on the iguana and just plain fun activities such as face painting, a digging for eggs game and a touch and feel booth.

Everyone loved the plant display and the opportunities to dance and frolic with King Blue. It was delightful and fun event for the whole family and all proceeds raised were given to the Blue Iguana Conservation Fund.
