Bodden Town gears up for Heritage Day

The soldier crab race is a popular event at the park.

The Bodden Town Heritage Committee has something special in store for visitors attending Monday’s Bodden Town Heritage Day.

“What better place for tourists to embrace the rich cultural heritage of the Caymanian people than in Bodden Town?”

According to the organizers, the Bodden Town Harry McCoy Sr. Park Heritage House and Nurse Josie’s Senior Home will come alive with activities from 10 a.m.

“What better place for tourists to embrace the rich cultural heritage of the Caymanian people than in Bodden Town?” asked Mary Lawrence, chairwoman of the Heritage Committee.

At Nurse Josie’s Senior Home on Saturday night, the ladies were busy polishing, stitching and making preparation to showcase a variety of historic artifacts highlighting the roles their ancestors played in bringing these islands to the forefront. They were also working on hosting art displays, traditional foods and historic demonstrations.

The day will be filled with much to see and do and both buildings will be open for public viewing.

There will be a lot of attractions and activities for the children, as well as a dress parade and old-time shopping.

There is also lots of parking at a new parking lot, accessible from Anton Bodden Drive, which will be open for people to park and have easy access to events.

“The heritage day event will be a wonderful occasion for visitors to have some extra fun and also get a lesson in Cayman history,” said Mrs. Lawrence.

At the event, ladies dressed in old-time plaid dresses and wide-brim straw hats will take visitors around the heritage homes and gardens.

Bodden Town Heritage Day takes place on Monday, Nov. 14, at Harry McCoy Park. All are encouraged to visit the event with their families.
