CARENAGE STYLE TO RULE FRENCHTOWN FATHER'S DAY

June 8, 2003 – From June 13 to 15 the Joseph Aubain Ballpark in Frenchtown will be transformed into a mini Carnival Village complete with dueling bands, dancing, and booths full of Caribbean food and cold beer in honor of Father's Day.
The festivities, sponsored annually by the Committee for the Betterment of Carenage, will begin with opening ceremonies at 7 p.m. on Friday when Miss Carenage 2003, Jennifer Greaux, will be crowned.
Governor Charles W. Turnbull and an assortment of officials will also be on hand to deliver remarks at the ceremony.
. Milo's Kings, the Sea Breeze Band and the Hard Core Band will be in Frenchtown throughout the weekend to keep the celebrants jumpin', and booths selling a huge assortment of local foods and drinks will line the stage in the ballpark's outfield.
Things should heat up on Saturday night when several ranking calypsonians will join forces with Imagination Brass to stage a calypso spectacular.
The Father's Day celebration will conclude in grand Carenage-style on Sunday evening when the winners of the Mother's Day and Pre-Father's Day Fishing Tournaments will be announced and several prizes, including a cash purse of $2,000 for the "Biggest Fish," will be given out.
According to event organizer Gail Joseph, "The Father's Day celebration promises to be a great experience for the entire family."
The event's sponsors include Coor's Light, distributed by Bellows International, and Offshore Marine.
