ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- Persons travelling to Tortola from the United States Virgin Islands (USVI) for the Virgin Islands Emancipation celebrations today, August 6, 2019 are assured of a late night return ferry to the USVI.

The horse races scheduled for Ellis Thomas Downs in Sea Cows Bay is expected to attract a more than usual crowd from the USVI, and according to Chairman of the Virgin Islands Festival and Fairs Committee, Carnel D. Clyne, persons would be hoping to stay on for the festivities at East End.

"After the races there is a late boat which is Aquatics Rental, which has given the assurance that they will be doing a late run and so once folks know that they can get back home they don’t mind staying over for the festival," Mr Clyne said today, August 6, 2019.

He was at the time supporting the small group of persons who were participating in the wet fete at the Prime Time Festiville.

A departure time for the ‘late ferry’ was not given.

Meanwhile, the wet fete was scheduled to start before sunrise and end at 8:00am. However, according to Virgin Islands Festival and Fairs Committee member Mr Ottley Hodge, Asa Banton was expected to headline the wet fete but was a "no show".

Nonetheless, persons were not going to be deterred and they grabbed their buckets and hoses and had a grand time.

    This is not accurate. People do not be fooled. Don’t miss your boats this afternoon, there will be no later boat.
