Conch Festival

The annual conch festival in Blue Hills was a hit with young and old..what a fun time.

Here’s a selection of my photos taken at the 9th Annual conch Festival held in Blue Hills over the weekend. Unfortunately due to an afternoon check in, we were late getting down there but managed to see both the conch blowing as well as  the  conch “knocking” competitions. Cash prizes were awarded to the person blowing a conch for the longest time and for the most conch “knocked” in a limited time. Drinks were flowing freely, all kinds of food available, conch dishes of all kinds and of course, the main event

 

This lady blew a mean conch!

And our captivating emcee for the conch-etition was David Bowen

Lookin' cool........love your glasses.

 

And the winner and Grand Champion is..........The Bay Bistro.

And one of the highlights of the evening was We Funk, the Junkanoo band. Everyone was dancing as the band swept them along with bells and whistles, drums and horns. Wow, this was the part of the festivities that I wait for and enjoy the most.

Colourful costumes.

Spectacular end to a wonderful Conch day with We Funk

What a fun day or at least for us, a few hours. We’ll be there next year so if you’re looking to vacation in November, find out the dates for the Conch Festival.

See you in Blue Hills.
