East End Heritage Day on Wednesday attracted visitors from all over the island for a day and night of traditional local foods, artifacts, live music and games.

As always the East End Heritage Committee had a special treat stored up for guests.

During the afternoon, a reenactment of an old-time shotgun wedding played out by East Enders Edney McLean as the shotgun-toting witness, Kevin Anderson as the groom, Marlene Samuels as the bride and Alan Ebanks as the marriage officer proved a hoot for those attending.

On display were old-time Singer sewing machines, photographs, bottles, bathtubs, pots, pans, bottles, a traditional thatch home and other memorabilia for visitors to see.

Ladies worked on craft items, men worked on thatch hats, children skipped rope and enjoyed bouncing castles while guests paraded the grounds of Heritage Field seeking out other Pirates Week activities.

Highlighting the many food stalls and activities taking place, emcee Delmira Kirchman-Bodden whipped up the crowd and encouraged everyone to have a good time.
