Local artists parade talents

It’s going to be a vibrant performance by singers, dancers, musicians and more for the eighth annual Community Christmas Parade, sponsored by Barnes Dance Academy, this Saturday, 1 December.

Schools, groups and individuals will be coming together to share their artistic talents with the community. The Cayman Prep and High School Steelpan Band, the Cayman Islands Marching Band, the Purple Dragon students, performers from Dance Unlimited and Musicians Unlimited are among the group performers and individuals such as Andy Bake, Nasaria Suckoo-Cholette and Randy Cholette will also be entertaining the audience with their many talents.

The Christmas parade is a free community event and takes place on the Crescent at Camana Bay, starting at 6.30pm.

“The Community Christmas Parade was designed to bring community members together in a relaxed atmosphere fostering a sense of community while sharing the spirit of Christmas,” says Susan Barnes of Barnes Dance Academy.

Camana Bay is delighted to be hosting the parade, not only because it is a family-friendly event but also because it fits perfectly with their commitment to fostering the arts in Cayman, says Davina Tresidder, Camana Bay events manager.

A large audience is expected, so no seating is being provided. Spectators will instead stand for the performance. For this reason, organisers have limited the performance to one hour.
