Lake Mainstay 19th annual regatta set for August 11
Plans are moving apace for the hosting of the 19th Annual Lake Mainstay Regatta billed for Sunday, August 11, 2019. The event is being hosted by Lake Mainstay in collaboration with the Business Ministry’s Department of Tourism.
This year, more action has been added to the day’s activities to cater for the motor-racing lovers. Over $3 million are up for grabs in several categories. These include the 15-, 40-, 90-, and 200-horsepower (HP) races and the Open race.
All the categories will be opened to both males and females.
In addition, there will be the 200-metre male and female canoe races, but be sure to walk with that hot swimwear if you want to participate in the 200m Open swimming race. There will also be a fun park for the children comprising a merry-go-around, bouncy castle and other rides.
There will also be food and drink bars.
However, as the sun sets, the entertainment will kick start. This year, the local artistes will take centre stage.
Performing live will be reigning Carib Soca Monarch Brandon Harding, Chutney Monarch finalist Vicardi, AW Lyrical and singing sensation Josie. In addition, DJ Avalanche and DJ Andrew Yee will be in the house to set the tone for a fantastic event. The emcee for the event will be Lyndon “Jumbie” Jones.
Admission to the event cost $1000 in advance for adults and $1200 at the gates while advance admission for children cost $500 and $700 at the gate.
