45th Annual Agriculture Show
Fresh produce, local arts and crafts, traditional musical performances, piggies! It’s time for the 45th Annual Agriculture Show!
As I mentioned last year on The Deep Dish, every Ash Wednesday the Ministry of Agriculture and the Cayman Islands Ag Society the annual Ag Show. This is the first time Clark Kent and I have been since moving to our new home, which is less than a mile from the Agriculture Grounds in Lower Valley. While there, we stocked up on some goodies for the yard including some tomato and scotch bonnet seedlings as well as an eggplant…um…plant.
From there, we hit the livestock pavilion.
I’m a sucker for the little piggies! So cuto 🙂 The Ag show also hosts a rough and rowdy rodeo which is always lots of fun to watch. The stick pony ride is especially entertaining.
The grounds are covered with booths representing loads of local farmers, ranchers, craftsmen and tourist attractions.
And the food. The glorious food. Milk shakes of every fruit flavor, sugar cane juice, veggie samosas, mexican pizza, sausages, rum cakes, home made jellies, fish and fritters. You name it, we ate it.
While the Grand Cayman Ag Show only lasts one day, there’s been a full week of activities and the celebration wraps up tomorrow at the Cayman Brac Agriculture Show. You can actually listen to live coverage of the day’s events on Radio Cayman.
|I promise, a good ‘thyme’ will be had by all. Yuk yuk 🙂
