More bands for UWI jump up
A record 16 bands will jump down the Spring Garden Highway for KadUWIval 2013, three more than last year.
Speaking at the Press launch at the University of the West Indies Cave Hill Campus Guild of Students Guild, National Affairs Committee chairperson Ziggy Marshall said this year’s festival would comprise eight events, starting March 17 with the UWI Splash Wet Fete and culminating on March 23 in the Road March and after-party.
Marshall added that in addition to organizing the festival events, the committee had initiated a series of community development efforts, including a donation to the Nightengale Children’s Home.
KadUWIval is an annual event and the bands go all out in costume design and colour. (AB)
