Tourism Week 2022 is well underway and we are off to a great start!

This week’s activities commenced with a Service of Thanksgiving on Saturday, December 3rd, at the Golden Grove Seventh-day Adventist Church. Then a Charity Golf Tournament at the Cedar Valley Golf Course on Sunday, December 4th.

Today was ‘You for a Day’ and ‘Schools Tour,’ where Team Tourism transitioned into different roles within the industry and visited a few of our schools across the island.

Tomorrow is Tourism Blast-Off held on St. Mary’s Street between Thames and Market Street. We invite the general public to come out and enjoy the entertainment, local cuisine, culture and arts and crafts by local artisans on island.ย
