Premier’s Christmas Extravaganza slated for Saturday

The annual ‘Premier’s Christmas Extravaganza with a Cultural Twist’ will be held on December 18, at the Festival Village Grounds in Road Town as a continuation of last year’s event.
Premier Andrew Fahie said he wanted to show everyone that COVID-19 has not taken the joy and spirit from the people of the Virgin Islands and this event will highlight that.

“We call it ‘The Sequel’ as it is a continuation of a story that despite COVID-19, despite devastating hurricanes and despite challenges we are able to come together and to push past obstacles to experience and create opportunities that allow us to see the good in every circumstance,” he said.

“We want to ensure that we keep everyone safe so the wearing of masks and social distancing are a must. There is no compromise there,” he said.

In making the announcement at his recent one-on-one session with the media last Friday, Fahie said the event is for the entire family. He noted the children’s segment will begin at 3 pm with games and singing.

“The singspiration and music with the adult groups starts at 5 pm. We expect to have performances and guests from Virgin Gorda, Anegada and Jost Van Dyke joining us here on Tortola for this celebration,” Fahie said.

He noted there will also be sample of Virgin Islands cultural food and drinks.

The Premier’s Christmas Extravaganza is an annual event hosted by the Premier and his wife. Last year, despite the coronavirus pandemic, Fahie hosted the event which has become a staple on the local Christmas calendar.
