Cudjoe Head Committee plans for next year’s celebrations

Plans are already in the working to include historic presentations on the history of the area Cudjoe Head to coincide with Emancipation Day commemoration for the next Cudjoe Head Day celebrations. Head of the organizing committee Paul Lewis revealed this in an interview with The Montserrat Reporter on Tuesday, August 7.

He said, “Next year we are looking at continuing dialogue with some of our locally known historians to do a feature on the history of Cudjoe Head…I think that the historians are in the best position to give us historic information not only about Cudjoe Head, but generally, especially since Cudjoe Head Day falls pretty close to Emancipation Day. We feel that it would be good to have that feature of it along with our usual fun events,” said Mr. Lewis.

In the interview Mr. Lewis hailed the recent Cudjoe Head Day celebrations a success.

“We had another successful Cudjoe Head day 2012. From all reports this year’s celebration was just as good as last year’s, but I think what’s even better this year was the live performances from our local artists. It is always good to have live music and new local artist, especially given that this gives them the chance now to warm up for the 50th festival celebration,” he said.

This year’s event featured a number of activities that commenced with a block party on Friday. On Saturday activities continued with an early morning breakfast sale and road race. Later in the day there were cultural presentations from the iron band, masqueraders, the string band and steel band.

In the evening Volcanic Vibes band rocked the crowd featuring performances from local calypsonians, including Pop Moris, Tabu, Sylvina, Silk, Jack Sprat and Cupid.

The evening concluded with several raffles and street lime, alongside the musical presentation of Tribe Star featuring DJ Moto.
