George Town was ablaze with colorful costumes and youthful energy on Saturday during the Junior Carnival Batabano.
The event started with a Family Fun Day on the Glass House grounds, followed by the junior Batabano parade that looped through the streets of George Town before ending back at the Glass House. Afterward, a mixer called “Glow Teen Jam” for youths ages 13 to 17 took place at the South Sound Community Center. Several hundred children accompanied by school bands took part in the event, which was originally introduced in 2002 as a part of the annual Cayman Carnival Batabano. However, in 2005 it became a stand-alone event that takes place the weekend before the adult Batabano.
