We invite you to sample the celebration of youth and heritage on the third weekend of June 2008. Highlights of the weekend activities will be interpretative tours of the refurbished Harrison’s Cave, treks through the rustic Jack-in-the-Box Gully, walks through the gentle Welchman Hall Gully and Flower Forest and experience the challenge of the 10K Run and 5K Walk course. In addition, the heritage tours of the picturesque central highlands of St. Thomas and St. Joseph on the replica of the historic ‘Rocklyn Bus’ have become a favourite activity. Aerial Trek Zipline Adventure is the new attraction and ultimate experience for visitors in 2008.
The Farm and Craft Market is meant to foster appreciation by local residents of the economic and socio-cultural value of nature-based tourism. Each day’s activities culminate in nightly entertainment featuring many aspects of our cultural Heritage.
This event would not occur without the generous assistance of our partners including the attractions, community, sponsors, other Departments of Government and of course, you the volunteers. Special mention must be made of the Youth PATH Members who always work beyond the call of duty. The NHD thanks you for your commitment as a young person involved in the event.
The participating attractions are – Harrison’s Cave, the Flower Forest, Welchman Hall Gully, Jack-in-the-Box Gully, Aerial Trek Zipline Adventures, Huntes Gardens and C.O. Williams Flowers.
