Despite the severe scale-down of the Virgin Gorda Easter Festival this year, the three-day event turned out to be a record-breaking success.
According to Chairwoman of the Virgin Gorda Festival Committee, Lyra George, this year’s Easter Fest food fair had the largest number of vendors in the history of the event.
“The food fair was awesome. For the first time we had 22 vendors in the village,” George announced during the final day of the festival.
The food fair opened the 2018 festival on a high note Saturday; paving the way for a successful parade, hat competition, and Easter egg hunt on Sunday.
Easter Fest culminated with a family beach day on Monday with more fun, food, and entertainment.
George said she is pleased with the overall turnout for this year’s festival given the circumstances.
“It was really great … Despite everything that happened with the hurricane and everything, I think people just need to feel a sign of normalcy,” she told journalists yesterday, April 2.
This year’s Virgin Gorda festival was downsized in recognition of post-hurricane circumstances still affecting the BVI.
