Given the record-breaking volume of rain that fell in the Cayman Islands on Discovery Day and for the next several days, it is no surprise that a number scheduled events had to be postponed on account of the weather. No need for disappointment, however, as the events are all being rescheduled, to ensure you won’t miss out on any of the fun. So, get your diaries out and make a note of the following dates:
18 June: Family Fun Day.
The event that was supposed to take place on Discovery Day as part of the child month celebrations will not go ahead on June 23. Other than the date, all details remain the same: families are invited to head to Pedro Castle where they can enjoy a picnic on the lawns and plenty of child-focused entertainment throughout the afternoon. Bona Fide band will be playing children’s songs, there will be story telling from the Cultural Foundation, puppet shows, traditional games and ballet performances from some of the islands’ youngest ballerinas.
In addition to the entertainment, a number of businesses and organisations offering products and services that promote child development will be showcasing their wares to interested parents.
23 June: Scavenger Hunt
The Discovery Day Scavenger Hunt organised by dms Broadcasting in collaboration with the Department of Tourism has been postponed until Saturday, 23 June. Due to the rescheduling a few spaces have opened up, so if you want to put your knowledge of the history, culture and nature of Cayman to the test, get in touch. Teams of four will drive to various landmarks around Grand Cayman, following clues and collecting souvenirs. The winning team will go home with $5,000 and runners up will receive trips to the Sister Islands. For more information contact [email protected]
24 June: ARK Paddleboard FUNdraiser
Those who bought tickets for the paddleboarding fundraiser at Kaibo this past Sunday will be pleased to hear that the event will now take place on Sunday, 24 June. It will be an afternoon filled with sea- and beach-based fun and games: paddle boards, wow balls, kayaks, kite flying and making, a bouncy castle and a candy shop are just some of the treats in store for participants. A water-shuttle will run between Camana Bay and Kaibo and, best of all, all funds raised will go toward ARK’s Feed Cayman Campaign.
