The Parade of Lights is a magical twilight boat procession which has become a highly anticipated event for all. In recognition of their 45th Anniversary, Cayman National is the new title sponsor of this hallmark event, in partnership with Hurley’s Production Ltd and have rebranded the event the Cayman National Parade of Lights complete with a new festive logo.
The fun starts at 6pm at the Crescent in Camana Bay with live performances from the UCCI Pandemix Steel Pan Band, Dreamchasers Cayman Dance Group and the First Baptist Church Choir. Santa and his sleigh will be available for photographs outside the Cayman National Branch together with a Christmas craft market along the waterfront at Camana Bay. Attendees can receive a copy of the highly anticipated Cayman National 2020 Calendar which has become a collector’s item for all. Watch boats of all sizes displaying their Christmas cheer in the biggest light parade on the water, followed by the spectacular fireworks display. DJ Marz will be playing tunes throughout the evening until late and there’ll be plenty of pop-up bars in addition to the many bars and restaurants within the Crescent.
