(Eleuthera, Bahamas) – The community of Spanish Wells, on Saturday July 9th, 2016 were out from the morning of that day for a series of activities in celebration of the 43rd year of Independence for the Commmonwealth of The Bahamas. It was termed the “8th Annual Independence Day Bash” and it all started under the beaming bright yellow sun at the public dock at 11am with a big splash in the water – the “Slippery Pole” and “Swim Races” with youthful energetic participants from preschool to school leavers. For the slippery pole the height of the pole above the water was increased as the age of the participants did and for the swim the distance did as well.
Food, Drink and Kiddie frozen cups were served from Stalls and the community on their golf carts came out in good numbers for the event, being aired on Splash FM and photographed in all its splendid colour by The Eleutheran – as you see it. In the evening the celebration moved on the the Ballpark with Emanji Circus Acts, Teen/Adult Games, Entertainment and more.
