Welcome Saxons Junkanoo Group

Sunrise Resort and Marina is pleased to welcome the Saxon Superstars Junkanoo Group from Nassau, Bahamas!

The famous Saxons will be performing in this weekend’s 2012 Rush for Peace event, which¬†kicks off the summer festival season on Grand Bahama.

This weekend’s events will include a Meet and Greet Street Party at the Fish Fry in Eight Mile Rock tonight and a beach bash at Taino Beach on Friday, June 1. The event will conclude with the Rush for Peace Junkanoo Parade on Saturday, June 2, at 7:00 p.m. where the Saxons will be competing for a cash prize.

Junkanoo dance troupes, which began in the Bahamas more than 500 years ago, perform dazzling routines set to local rhythms. The elaborate costumes are beautifully decorated and include bright-colored crepe paper and cardboard.

Hope you can make it out to experience the local Bahamian culture and cheer on the Saxons!
