It was a carnival-like atmosphere Monday as leaders of the St. Kitts-Nevis Trades and Labour Union and the St. Kitts-Nevis Labour Party led thousands of supporters through the streets of Basseterre on Labour Day.
Led by the Pom Pom girls, hundreds more lined the route to watch the spectacle as the march, which grew in numbers, as it wended its way from the Patsy Allers Playing Field through Basseterre via Cunningham, Central, Fort, Bank, George and Cayon Streets before returning to be addressed by Prime Minister Hon. Dr. Denzil L. Douglas prior to an afternoon of picnicking and games.
Earlier Union and Party officers along with relatives visited the graves of National Heroes, Their Right Excellencies, Sir Robert L. Bradshaw, Sir C.A. Paul Southwell and Sir Joseph N. France where wreaths will be laid.
Wreaths were also laid on the graves of the late Sir Lee Llewellyn Moore, the late Clarence Fitzroy Bryant, the late E. St. John Payne and the late Fidel O’Flaherty after brief remarks.
