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
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.
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.
