Though I was stuck back in Los Angeles caring for Wrigley, my Green Turtle Cay friends did not disappoint when it came to keeping me updated about goings-on at the 2018 Island Roots Heritage Festival, and of course, taking some terrific photographs.
Weatherwise, the festival got off to a rocky start, with heavy rains on Friday, May 4, which led to the postponement of a number of events, including the opening ceremony.

If you’re lucky enough to be spending some or all of the holiday season on Green Turtle Cay, you’ve got lots to look forward to!

One of the highlights of Green Turtle Cay’s holiday season is the Festival of Lights – when the settlement of New Plymouth is awash in Christmas colours.
This year’s festival kicks off tonight, with a Community Family Fun Night at Heritage Park (Settlement Point) during which the town will be officially lit up for the holidays. Dinner, drinks and sweets will be available for purchase, and there’ll be games and activities for kids of all ages. Plus, you’ll enjoy the terrific classic jazz of Sax Man, Rashad Reckley.
