Good food, games at family fun day

Exciting games, tasty treats and clear skies made for a fun day at the Brac’s recent family fair.

With conditions sunny and very hot, close to 200 people attended the family fun day hosted by the Department of Children and Family Services at the Brac public beach on May 21.

The event was held as part of Child Month, which brought a host of activities across the Cayman Islands.

“Emcee Jonathan Tibbetts kept everyone in tune, informed and in stitches,” said Brac community development officer Elsa Scott, who noted that members of the National Drug Council came over from Grand Cayman to assist with the event.

“They played ‘Who wants to be drug-free millionaire?’ and gave prizes to the winners,” she added.

Ms. Scott said other games played throughout the day included a water balloon toss, bowling, hula hooping, a soldier crab race, musical chairs, a sack race, a three-legged race and a limbo contest.

“Everyone enjoyed Kevin Foster’s bouncy castle and the cotton candy, and especially the ‘sno’ cones, which were definitely needed in the sweltering heat,” said Ms. Scott.

Free hamburgers, hot dogs and drinks were catered by Star Island, and the event was sponsored by the Department of Children and Family Services, the National Drug Council, the Market Place, Scott Development, District Administration and the Public Works Department.
