Bridgetown will be aglow with blue and yellow lights for the next 29 days as activities kick into high gear to mark 46 years of nationhood.
The flick was switched on in Heroes Square tonight by young Julian Brookes, who is a student at the Irving Wilson School. It was witnessed by Governor General Sir Elliott Belgrave, Minister of Culture Stephen Lashley, Member of Parliament for The City, Patrick Todd, other officials and members of the public.
This Independence glow will spread to the north and south of the country for the first time this year, with lighting ceremonies at the Speightstown Esplanade, St Peter and Gall Hill, Christ Church tomorrow and Saturday respectively. (YB)
