    (Guyana Chronicle) THE Communities Development Council (CDC) of the mining town of Linden on Sunday hosted an inaugural CARICOM parade and exhibition in observance of CARICOM Day, today.

    The parade saw participation from Antigua and Barbuda, Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, Montserrat, St Kitts and Nevis, St Lucia, St Vincent and the Grenadines, Suriname and Trinidad and Tobago.

    Those representing these countries were delegates who will participate in a CARICOM pageant slated for Monday evening.

    The parade started at the Linden Hospital Complex (LHC) and concluded at the Christianburg Community Centre Ground, where officials from various CARICOM countries addressed the audience on CARICOM and how citizens can get involved.

    There were 15 booths, representing the various countries, which showcased their culture, geography and way of life. There were other fun-packed and family- oriented activities after the march, such as football and domino competition.

    Sunday’s activity was one of many on a week-long calendar of activities, organised by the CDC.
