Saturday’s Coco Fest at Pedro St. James was enjoyed by the hundreds of people.

Now in its second year, Coco Fest celebrates the Cayman coconut, a bountiful food source with legendary properties and a traditional staple in the Caymanian diet.

On the Pedro grounds in Savannah, vendors showcased everything coconut.

On offer was plenty of fresh coconut water and jelly, coconut toothpaste, ice cream, jello, candy shrimp and products such as wall plaques, paintings, rum, oils and a children’s coconut corner.

“It was a success last year and a bigger success this year,” said Debbie Bodden, Pedro’s operations manager.
