ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - The 2018 edition of Christmas on ‘DeCastro’ Street marked its 20th anniversary today, November 30, 2018, and will be celebrated in reverence of the late Honourable Delores Lettsome-Christopher, the former District Five Representative.

Hon Lettsome-Christopher died recently, when she succumbed to her battle with cancer.

City Manager of the Virgin Islands (VI), Ms Janice Braithwaithe-Edwards, yesterday, November 29, 2018, in announcing that the 20th anniversary is a celebration of Hon Lettsome-Christopher said, "this year for Christmas on DeCastro Street, one of the things we are going to be doing, is honouring the legacy of the late Honourable Delores Christopher while at the same time ushering in the new Christmas season."

She said "”the 20th celebration meant a lot to her and so she gave us some instructions, we are trying to follow those instructions what it is she would have like to see for the 20th anniversary."

Special Tribute

With insights from some of the founding members, the programme will be shaped to include special tributes to the former legislator.

"In addition, we are going to be having some young and upcoming artists displaying their art work because that's one of the things that she liked and one of the things that she was keen on, is the fact that Christmas is the spirit of giving, so we are going to give back to her legacy," said the City Manager.

Ms Braithwaithe noted too that all the stores in the catchment areas have committed to remaining open late for shopping, in addition to Clovers' much anticipated midnight sale.

For the two days food and other vendors

According to the City Manager, this year's event, set for today and tomorrow December 1, 2018 will feature much more entertainment with a special focus on the Territory's local bands.

"A lot more fungi music, a lot more music and we are even having the bouncy castle for the children this year…Christmas on DeCastro Street is going be very exciting this year," said Mrs Braithwaithe-Edwards.
