Saxophonist Fred Robertson of Ardenne High entertains the audience at the launch of Kingston Pon 
Di River literary, arts and music festival at the Spanish Court Hotel on Tuesday.

Kingston Pon Di River was launched at a 'baby' Boone Hall Oasis at the Spanish
Court Hotel on Tuesday. Organisers Dynamic Event Services (DES) say they believe
the event was capable of sending a different view of the hustle-and-bustle city
to others locally and internationally.
This the organisers explained, could be achieved through using a combination of
literature and nature.
The event which is to take place on May 29 at Boone Hall Oasis in Stony Hill, St
Andrew, is a literary arts festival which will include aspects of the visual,
performing and culinary arts - all under one umbrella.
Part of the proceeds from the event is slated to go toward aiding in the
restoration of The Ward Theatre.
Calabash, a similar festival, came to an end after 10 years, out of that
Kingston Pon Di River was born.
The organisers did not seek to replace the event, however, but offer their
version, opting not to go to Calabash's Treasure Beach, St Elizabeth venue, but
to the Boone Hall Oasis where the soothing flow of the river and the
picturesque, natural surroundings will appeal to the senses.
They want to show the rest of the world that Kingston is also a destination for
fun and relaxation.
