Parade celebration brings new touch to Oistins


Share post:

OISTINS IS KNOWN to come to life on weekends, but yesterday it reached a new level with the launch of the 2014 Community Independence Celebrations.

The large crowd cheered loudly for their parish ambassadors and attendants, often including friendly verbal jabs and banter.

Under the guidance of master of ceremonies Cassandra Crawford, the diverse programme included a parade down Oistins Hill with all the Parish Independence Committees; songs; dance; instrumentals; stick licking and drama and the feature address by Minister of Culture Stephen Lashley.

The previous attendants and ambassadors went out with style as their most outstanding members were honoured with awards while the next generation were introduced and recited their pledges.
