EASTER WAS ON SHOW yesterday as the Oistins Fish Festival continued.

Students from St Christopher’s Primary wore their Sunday finest as they paraded on stage at Oistins Bay Garden.

Teacher and organiser Tamara Moseley told the DAILY NATION that the Christ Church primary school had hosted its own Easter bonnet parade during the last week last term.

She said the 25 participants represented about double the number of those in the 2016 parade.

She added there were six categories this year, including the Festivals Of Barbados, Traditional Bajan Easter and Real Sportsmanship.

Moseley said a few of the children were given the opportunity to parade in their colourful outfits. She made special mention of the Three Dollar Store in Oistins for helping with the parade. (AD)
