After a year of tilling the soil and tending to livestock, Cayman’s farmers are coming together to showcase the fruits of their labour for everyone to see.
Thousands of people are expected to check out what’s on offer at tomorrow’s show. Many attending the market look forward to the variety of local produce, Caymanian style food, music games and event the performance of the Cayman Islands Equestrian Federation. But there is something else that’s bound to rustle the attention of fair-goers.
“This year we are looking to have more of a carnival theme, and one other thing that is exciting, is that we have a mechanical bull that we have never had before,” said George Smith the President of the Cayman Agricultural Society.
Now celebrating 49 years, the fair has grown over the decades, and Mr. Smith says it provides so much needed light on the efforts of our local farmers.
He said,” The reasons why we are asking and begging people to support the agriculture sector, is that if the sector grows it’s a benefit to the whole Islands and I think that’s the main importance of the agriculture show.”
People attending the fair, who are not yet registered to vote, but are eligible to vote can get registered. All they need is the supporting documents.
The RCIPS is advising people traveling along Shamrock Road in the Lower Valley area to drive with caution and expect some traffic delays between the hours of 6:00 AM and 7:00 AM. Similar to years gone by police will place traffic cones out to help people trying to enter and exit the grounds, as well as to help the general flow of traffic.
