The parade kicked off from St. Mary’s Primary, Soesdyke and made its way to CJIA’s ground, Timehri.

A mini concert was also held at CJIA’s ground with some of CJIA’s staff revealing their hidden talents including singing and dramatic poetry.

One bold young lady from the crowd took the stage to sing ‘Not a Blade a Grass’ made popular by Dave Martins.
