Fun in the sun to feed Cayman

It’s time to get your fun hats on again and go play on the beach. That’s hardly asking a lot – especially when it’s all you need to do in order to help some of Cayman’s poorest families. Cayman’s ARK are holding their Fun to Feed Cayman event once again on Sunday, 20 January.

It’s all about spending some time out on the beach and in the water, and in so doing helping to raise money for a worthy cause.

Following the success of the first Fun to Feed Cayman event last year, there’s going to be a whole host of water sports and beach games put on and it will be a great day out for the whole family.

All you need to do is pack your bucket and spade, paddleboard or water toy of your choice, and head down to the beach at Kaibo.

You don’t even need to worry about the drive out there as Moby Dick Tours are kindly offering free boat rides from Camana Bay to Kaibo and back. Boats will depart Camana Bay at 12.45pm and return at 5pm.

If you don’t have water toys of your own, there will be plenty available on the beach: WOW balls from Xtreme Watersports, paddleboards provided by the Sweet Spot and kayaks from Cayman Kayaks will all be available for use, and the cost is included in the ticket price – as is the boat ride over, by the way.

It’s going to be great afternoon for families and little ones, with a bouncy castle set up on the beach, a teddy bear tombola – which was hugely popular last year – and old fashioned English sweet shop for those needing a little sugary treat to keep their energy levels up. With luck, there will even be kites to fly.

Between 3 and 4pm there will be a sand castle competition, so start thinking up your most intricate and impressive designs. You will have to take your own sand castle building tools, but there are some awesome prizes to be had.

Tickets are just $5 for children $10 for adults or $25 for families – which includes the boat trip, water toys and entertainment. Those planning to take the boat over do need to RSVP, by calling 323-2287 or e-mailing [email protected] Event tickets can be paid for upon arrival at the dock.
