1 thought on “St. Kitts – Nevis Independence Day Event Calendar 2010”

  1. Everyone (ZIZ, SKVibes, others) keeps repeating this exact schedule, but no one has put any contact information or further details should anyone actually want to attend some of these functions. Like where are the Fun Run and Embassy marathon events going to start? How do you register? What exactly is a Cultural Gala and why would we want to go? Some details would be appreciated, or at least a way to obtain them (even if it was a link) – this lack of info is frustratingly endemic in the publications here! Be the one that bucks the trend.
