Street fair offers Cayman experience

Cruise ship passengers joined with locals in enjoying a street fair on Cardinall Avenue on Thursday. Local food and crafts were for sale.

The weekly event, initially organized by the Pirates Week Committee, is now run by chef John Jefferson Jr. of Culture Shop and gives visitors an opportunity to sample foods of the islands, coconut water, jerk chicken and music to get a real Cayman experience.

The street is closed before 8 a.m. to facilitate the event.
