Dear Sponsors, Supporters, Partners and Participants, Service Providers of the Tru Tru Bahamian Festival,
Thank you so much the part you played in making the BHTA’s 5th Annual Tru Tru Bahamian Festival a success! We had some weather, but that did not stop the visitors and locals from coming out to enjoy all the Tru Tru Bahamian Festival had to offer.

We could not do this without the support, patronage and partnership of all of you! This event is indeed a labour of love for The Bahamas Hotel and Tourism Association; as many of you know, it takes significant resources, financial and otherwise to host the Tru Tru Bahamian Festival. The BHTA and people like you devote a phenomenal amount of time, energy and professional prowess to plan, prepare and execute this beloved event. Our BHTA staff Sharon, Latasha, Dominique and Kendrick; President Russell and Executive Committee of The BHTA; Tru Tru Bahamian committee members; Nina Maynard and her team of professionals; are proud to be part of the diverse and dedicated group of people who love the Festival; and work incredibly hard every year to ensure, to the best of our ability, the Tru Tru Bahamian Festival bring joy to as many people as possible.

It wasn’t weird at all to see an adult showing a youngster the game of hopscotch over the weekend at John Watling’s Distillery, or the plaiting of the maypole, or children engaging in play that did not entail the use of an electronic device – because, after all, it was the Tru Tru Bahamian Festival at which all things Bahamian took center stage.
