The district of East End earned the top spot in the Pirates Week float competition with its evocative creation highlighting the district’s heritage, natural beauty and landmarks, all tying in to this year’s Pirates Week theme, “Age of Romance.”
According to a description provided by the Pirates Week Festival, the float’s “Love of Old” tableau is set in a traditional Cayman chapel, where a wedding is conducted symbolizing East End’s Christian heritage and values.
The float’s underwater scene depicts visitors’ love of the islands.
“They fall in love with our beautiful sea and beaches, as precious jewels of the Caribbean, ‘Beloved Isle Cayman,’” the description states.
Rounding out the float, the East End “Lover’s Wall” tableau is a modern depiction of love:
“From the four corners of the globe, it comes to life in our district, where seas brush the ironshore and drape you with serenity and peace, as you watch a beautiful sunset – or as you profess your love to that special someone under the Cayman moonlight.”
