The Brac Agriculture Show this weekend will have something for everyone, organizers say.
The show, one of the Sister Islands’ largest community events, takes place Saturday, Feb. 28, at the Agricultural Grounds, off Songbird Road on the Bluff.
The cultural event, now in its 12th year, will feature a huge display of local produce and mouth-watering dishes, alongside animal displays, exhibits, sales booths, competitions and demonstrations by Customs, police, and health and fire services, as well as live entertainment, fashion shows, a host of awards and presentations and a grand prize draw of US$2,000.
A traditional Caymanian breakfast will be offered at 8 a. m., followed by the official opening. Chekiya Tatum will sing the national anthem, and Ernie Scott, district commissioner, will sing the national song.
