“We come back on the 21st with our Official Opening and Award Giving Ceremony. On the Friday we are having our Queen Show. On the 23rd we are having a Green Valley DJ Sound Clash and we are dedicating this event to Razzy Graggy Parris, he passed, he was a DJ, he used to help us a lot so we’re dedicating this event to him. On the 24th we’re having our Annual Keys Beach Bash at Keys and then from 10 pm in the evening, we are having a Green Valley Band Clash which leads straight down to J’ouvert Morning and also on the 25th you have the parade as well,” he said.
