George Town typically becomes fairly quiet in the evenings, after the last cruise ship has pulled out of port and the sun sets in the distance. However, a group of musicians, DJs and performers are planning to breathe life back into the islands’ capital by putting on shows suitable for all ages to enjoy.
Harbour Nights is the name of the planned series of evenings, starting with an open air concert this Saturday from 6 p.m. to midnight along Harbour Drive, overlooking the water.
Set to take the stage are performers Back Beat Band, DJ Ralph, Unity, and Regeneration Band. In addition to providing an avenue for local artists to perform, visitors will be able to enjoy activities such as face painting and a teen disco, as well as local food specials and live entertainment at surrounding restaurants. The event is free of charge to the public.
Harbour Nights was created to be a catalyst to help revitalize the George Town town center. The concert series is set to take place once each quarter, and it is hoped that it will become a fixture on people’s calendars.
As other events held in George Town, such as Mardi Gras, Pirates Week and Batabano, have been very successful over the years, there is no reason why Harbour Nights shouldn’t meet its goal of bringing people back to Hog Sty Bay for evenings of revelry.
Organized by the Cayman Music and Entertainment Association, Harbour Nights is funded by the Ministries of Culture, Planning and Tourism.
