Contestants in the 2015 Nevis Culturama Festival Mr. and Ms. Talented Pageant and Junior Kaiso Contest to be launched this weekend.

CHARLESTOWN, Nevis –July 03rd, 2015 : Eighteen students from five Primary Schools on Nevis will this Sunday July 5th, take to the stage at the Caribbean Cove for the launch of the Culturama 41 Mr. and Ms. Talented Youth Pageant contestants and the Junior Kaiso participants.

This launch is seen as a historic event as it the first time there will be a launch of the Junior Kaisonians in over two decades since the Junior Kaiso Contest was introduced to the Culturama calendar of activities. It is however customary to have a launch of the Mr. and Ms. Talented Youth Pageant contestants but this year both sub-committees decided to collaborate on this event thus making it a somewhat unique, creative and spectacular launch. Each of the contestants will make three appearances on stage. These appearances will be captioned Culture, Fete and Fun. In the cultural appearance the contestants would be dressed in cultural costumes depicting the various folk traditions of Nevis such as Masquerades, Cow Boys and Indians and Cakewalk to name a few.

Ms. Patricia Claxton, past chairperson of the Mr. and Ms. Talented Youth Pageant sub-committee from 1993 to 1998 will be the esteemed patron for the launch while the KORE Band will provide musical entertainment for the afternoon.
