This event will also feature a Junkanoo rush-out battle of the High School Bands between Central Eleuthera and Preston Albury High School Bands, and the guest speaker will be Rev. Bishop William Thompson.
This biweekly market showcases a wide range of 'true true' Bahamian handmade products for sale, including straw items, jewelry, paintings, ceramics, music, clothing, pet wares, local fruit popsicles and drinks, and so much more!
The local people get the opportunity to interact with the winter residents during this time. The highlights of this event are our culture inclusive of Bahamian food and music, native fashion show, and junkanoo. Vendors will be displaying authentically Bahamian crafts that they have made.
