marion-hall-photo-2.jpgAs part of its 50th anniversary celebrations the Urban Development Corporation (UDC) is partnering with Digicel to host the Harbour Fest to be held along the Kingston Waterfront on Friday, August 31.

The event is slated to include a mix of Jamaican food, craft and live entertainment for the entire family.

Patrons will get to enjoy product samplings and service offerings, free medical checks, while children will be accommodated in a designated 'kiddies village'.

According to UDC Director of Corporate Communication, Lorna Clarke, "the staging of Harbour Fest represents the corporation's commitment to its mandate of facilitating the restoration of downtown Kingston and promoting it as a preferred venue for business and social events".


The UDC will also use the opportunity to reward 19 children of members of staff who were successful in the recent GSAT examinations, while Digicel will announce the final winner of its Set Fi Di Summa promotion.

"We are ending summer 2018 on a high note and we couldn't think of a better way to do it than to award one lucky Digicel customer at Harbour Fest with $100,000 as the final winner in our Set Fi Di Summa promotion. With over 4,000 winners in the overall promotion, we are happy to have helped to fulfil the dreams of so many Digicel customers," said Digicel Public Relations and Communications Manager, Elon Parkinson.

Harbour Fest is a renewed recreational activity first organised by the UDC and partners over a decade ago and has expanded its offerings to attendees, thanks to the support of Digicel, Waterfront Medical and The Jamaica Defence Force Coast Guard, UDC said.

The event will see live performances from Minister Marion Hall, Wayne Marshall, Chi Ching Ching, Etana and will last from 11:00 am until 7:00 pm.
