Cayman’s own Jazz Festival starts this evening.
Despite this being only the second year of the event, international ticket sales for this year’s jazz fest are said to be already double those of last year.
The opening night event is a small, intimate concert at the Westin, with more on Friday night at various locations and then a cultural family day on Saturday with arts, crafts, cassava cake and food, thatch making and a visit from SpongeBob SquarePants.
What is it with Bob? The yellow Spongey one certainly seems to be making an impression in Cayman at the moment as he has been painted onto one of the Cayman Airways airplanes and the Department of Tourism even held a ‘Cayman Islands Sea School’ with Spongebob this summer where kids attended a weekly presentation on marine life, the environment, Cayman’s seafaring past and the legendary shipwrecks just off our shores; and of course they also got to create SquarePants arts and crafts.
Sorry Bob, we know the original spongeman of East End and you’re not a patch on a real life encounter with this fella! (Photo courtesy of Ocean Frontiers).
