Rooster 101’s family-oriented event at Camana Bay is bigger than ever
The Crescent in Camana Bay was
Easter Egg central last Saturday, 3 April.
The location was a huge draw for
young families as the venue of Z99 and Rooster 101’s annual Easter Egg Hunt
held in conjunction with Camana Bay.
In a change from previously; this
year’s four-hour event had Easter egg hunts on three sites. Organisers
explained that they had split the hunts into age groupings to make it fairer on
younger children and allow everyone to have a good time and an equal chance of
getting a stash of eggs.
Youngsters traded their brightly-coloured
hauls for candy and played on the giant bouncy castle. Others sat down past the
dancing fountain to take in the music of local band Bona Fide, met up with the
Easter Bunny, did arts and crafts at the shaded stand, had their faces painted
or tumbled and pirouetted at Motions Unlimited’s mini gym.
“The event keeps getting bigger and
better,” said Z99’s Operations Manager JB. “Easter is a great holiday and gives
families the chance to spend quality time together, Z99 and Rooster are glad to
be part of that in this annual community event.”
Staff from both local radio
stations were there being friendly and accommodating while manning a couple of
stands. Most stalls, including the hotdog and soda kiosk, did brisk trade.
“I had a nice time but was
disappointed that they didn’t have a golden egg with a special prize this year,”
said last year’s lucky winner Paris Broad.
On hand to tell visitors more about
what to expect at this year’s Batabano festival were Donna Myrie-Stephenson and
other members of the Batabano Committee. Their stall was popular with adults
and children who wanted to get their pictures taken while wearing one of
several carnival headdresses; which were most decorated with sequins and
Animal House also had a stall at
the Easter Egg Hunt for those interested in all aspects of pet care.
