Roxborough was the centre of Republic Day celebrations in Tobago on Sunday with a parade of the protective and auxiliary services beginning at 10 am from the
Argyle Community Centre through the streets of Roxborough to Pirates Boat Yard then onto the Cyd Grey Complex.
This was followed by the annual Roxborough Regatta, hosted by the Roxborough Fishermen Association at the village’s jetty.
Rough seas put a damper on the event with some races being called off.
The major race, the Power Boat race was on, however, with favourite Blue Ice crossing the finish line to take trophy.
And despite inclement weather in the evening, the day ended with a successful cultural show with patrons packing the Cyd Gray Complex to take performances by various artistes and groups, including Frank Job performing “Tobago”, the Lisa School of Dance, Roxborough Performers, Zante Unique Touch limbo group, Prince Unique, Guardian Knight, and Adana, who closed the show before a 30-minute fireworks display.
