The Announcement:
he day begins at 9am with a boat parade launching in Fort Charles. Get set to cheer on the 30-boat extravaganza from vantage points along the scenic, sea route, including Fort Charles, Billy’s Bay, Frenchman’s Bay, Old Wharf, Great Bay, and Calabash Bay. Following the landing of the boats in Calabash Bay, a marching band will lead the festive group on a street parade to the Breds Treasure Beach Sports Park.

A star-filled sports festival is next on the agenda, featuring Universe Boss, cricket superstar Chris
Gayle. Of course, local favorites, the Treasure Beach All Stars, will also be in attendance, primed and ready to go. As a special treat, House of Lords & Commons CC, the UK parliamentary cricket team, will be flown to Jamaica by Virgin Atlantic, just for the celebration, by the Jamaica Tourist Board.
