Celebrate Jamaica at 60!
Treasure Beach is celebrating Jamaica’s 60th anniversary of independence on Saturday August 6th, with a fun day of activities - all are welcome!
We are marking this historic event with a big day of free events, sponsored by Lashings, Jakes Hotel and the Jamaica Tourist Board. It will start with a boat parade along the coast with 30 vessels, which can be seen from vantage points along the route, including Billy’s Bay, Frenchman’s Bay, Old Wharf, Great Bay and Calabash Bay. Following the landing of the boats in Calabash, a marching band will lead a street parade to the Breds Treasure Beach Sports Park.
This will be followed by a sports festival featuring Universe Boss, cricket superstar Chris Gayle and celebrity friends. After the full day of sports, stars and music at Breds, the celebration continues with a concert and fireworks at Jack Sprat, Treasure Beach.
