George Town Heritage Day activities featured a lot more than pirates for visitors attending the Nov. 15 event at the Farmers Market Grounds. A rich display of Cayman produce was on offer, as well as multicultural heritage and foods in a cool setting. A DJ was spinning music all day.
Food stalls offered everything from Caymanians’ favorite turtle stew dish to made-on-the-spot peppermint candies by Rose Myles.
Supporting the event and dining out on some local stews were Premier Alden McLaughlin, along with Agriculture Minister Kurt Tibbetts.
Cayman traditional storyteller Vernetta Ryan made visitors welcome with her life-in-Cayman stories, and George Town Festival Queen Mellisa Rankine paraded the grounds in her official costume.
The event also featured displays of artifacts and memorabilia and kids’ games.
