PARAQUITA BAY, Tortola, VI- The venue for the Kiddies Fiesta, hosted by the Rotary Club of Road Town, proved to be the ideal spot for the occasion as hundreds of persons enjoyed the unlimited parking, wide open space, as well as the cool shade of the ‘Tentorium’ in the compound of the H. Lavity Stoutt Community College (HLSCC) in Paraquita Bay on July 23, 2016.

Hundreds of children, many with painted faces, were thrilled with the bouncy castles, rides and huge water slides, and even the strong shower that sent some scurrying for shelter under the huge tent.

One of the big attractions for the children was the opportunity to meet some of their favourite cartoon characters, including Po from Kungfu Panda, Dora the Explorer, Sponge Bob Square Pants and Minion, who especially had to fend off many who were interested in poking his one eye and turning him into a punching bag.

As the children had their fun, many of the adults made good use of the various food and drinks on sale.

The club also distributed backpacks with school supplies to the first 400 children to register on the day of the event.

Community partners for the Rotary Club of Road Town’s Annual Kiddies Fiesta included NAGICO Insurances, FLOW, Tortola Auto Group, Splash Zone, and the Ministry of Education.

      I was wondering the same thing after spending over 4 hours thereand still waiting for the characters to appear. Was first 400 or the last 400 left there?
