Holetown festival opens


Added 10 February 2019


The 2019 Holetown Festival is officially open.

Though a bit more low key than in previous years, the event opened today at the Holetown Police Station grounds, a move from the customary location at the Holetown complex in St James.

Delivering the feature address, Minister of Tourism Kerrie Symmonds encouraged all to come out and support the annual event.

He urged all, to reflect on the true meaning of the festival.

It was also noted that this year, there would be no Queen of the Festival Pageant.

At the opening, they were many cultural presentations as well as performances by Paula Hinds and ambassador for the event Hypasounds. (DB)
