Laventille Steelband Festival
The Laventille Steelband Festival Foundation "Proud to be Laventille" held its 18th Annual Emancipation Steelband Festival and Street parade last Saturday despite the inclement weather and a lack of electricity. Twenty one steel orchestras paraded on the Eastern Main Road stopping in front of Panland Limited to play for the invited guests. Among those invited were the Minister of Community Development, Culture and The Arts, Dr. Nyan Gadsby-Dolly, Laventille East/Morvant MP Adrian Leonce, Minister of National Security Edmund Dillon and members of the Beijing Litan High School who were special guest of the Foundation.
