Fete, Jollification, serenade and large family gatherings all play a huge role in our Cultural Heritage. They are vibrant cultural traditions that promote a sense of community. And food of course is an essential component of these gatherings. The traditional way of cooking on 3 stones predates the era of convenience items like stoves.
These traditional gatherings are vulnerable to modern societal ills such as gun violence. The 2013 Fish Day celebration was marred by a shooting that took place during the festivities. Pictured here is 2014 celebration which was attended cautiously by vendors and the public.
