Cayman Carnival Batabano is ready to hit the streets with its usual colour, splendour, vibrancy and multi-cultural representation.
Festivities get underway this year with the Junior Batabano Street Parade and Family Fun Day on Saturday, 25 April beginning at 3pm from the lawns of the Government Administration Building (Glass House) in George Town.
Chairperson of Cayman Carnival Batabano, Donna Myrie-Stephen, said: ‘We are so 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’.
Mrs. Myrie-Stephen also added that, once again, gratitude is expressed to the event’s sponsors, the Ministry of Youth, Education, Sports and Culture, Butterfield Group, Dart Realty (Cayman) and the Rotary Club of Grand Cayman.
This event supports youngsters in enjoying 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 day provides wholesome entertainment and an opportunity for participants and spectators alike to come out enjoy.
