A press conference has been called by the organizers to outline and share their new initiatives with members of the media and by extension, the public. The media briefing has been scheduled for Tuesday 30th August, at the Carambola Beach Club at South Friars Bay.
This press event comes weeks ahead of a planned motorcade and horse racing extravaganza that is slated for 18th September, the day before Independence Day in St. Kitts & Nevis. A packed line up of entertainment has been incorporated as part of the day’s program, according to a release from the management.
The Independence race meet will incorporate a halftime show that will include dance performances from what they are calling, the “Beaumont Girls”.
The planned motorcade is due to start at midday, from the old Treasury Building on the Bay Road, (Now the National Trust building), travelling through the rural districts of St. Kitts, ending at Beaumont Park, in time for the start of the thoroughbred horse racing, due to commence from 3:00pm.
Among the celebrities expected to make appearances on the motorcade are the reigning National Carnival Queen, Iantavian Queeley, the St. Kitts Under 23 Football and Netball Teams and representatives of other youth organizations.
The Small Axe Band, DJ Wett Dutt, Mick Stokes, Nicha B and others, form part of the line- up of entertainers to perform at the event, during the half time and at other intervals.
