Description of Event

This annual homecoming event started in 1990 and has been held every Easter since then. It targets descendants who have never been to the island or have not visited for a very long time.

Saturday features an early morning street march and a deep-sea fishing tournament during the day. On Sunday, there is a church service. Monday is a family fun day that includes games, a gospel concert, and local food and drinks for sale.
