The Portsmouth Reunion kicked off on Saturday with a mini-carnival parade witnessed by hundreds of residents.
The parade was highlighted by the participation of over 250 French nationals from Guadeloupe who formed several different costume bands.
The reunion is being organized by Portsmouth Reunion Organization, Inc, a non-profit organization.
Activities will continue until August 12.
The parade started at the Roosevelt Douglas Primary School and made its way through Zicack, and eventually onto the streets of the main commercial area of Portsmouth Central.
The reunion continues throughout this week with several family activities. There will also be a Belle Marché on Saturday together with a Market Day Revival at the Portsmouth Market.
On Sunday there will be a Dinner and Dance, then a J’ouvert followed by August Monday Reunion Festivities in the second town.
