This Thursday is Star Antigua from 8:00 pm and Friday sees the Independence Fete “Dance” from 9:00 pm. The weekend continues with a market day and church service and back with a Folk/Heritage Night and evening of dance on Monday. Activities continue into the week with programmes, choir festivals and the National Youth Rally and School Steelband Competition on Wednesday October 30th. Next Thursday is National Dress Day followed by the Dress Parade and Day of Flag, closed off in the evening with the Independence Homecoming Banquet. Of course celebrations reach the highlight event on Friday November 1st, which is a public holiday with a Ceremonial Parade, Food Fair, Panache and more.
