Chairman of the Kingston and St Andrew Development and Homecoming Foundation Limited, Custos Steadman Fuller has announced plans for the staging of the Kingston and St Andrew Homecoming Week Celebrations, from November 18 to 25, 2018.

The celebrations will start with the launch of the Student Motivation and Empowerment Programme for high school students in the two parishes on Wednesday, October 24 beginning 10:00 am at Jamaica Conference Centre, with about 300 students invited to participate.

Outstanding citizens who have achieved in their chosen fields, including three former prime ministers and the present prime minister, have been invited to visit a school to do a 20-30-minute motivational presentation to students, by sharing their personal experiences and offering themselves role models for young people, especially during the month of November.

Other events planned for the Kingston & St. Andrew Homecoming Week include a thanksgiving service on Sunday, November 18 at Faith Cathedral Deliverance Centre, 104 Waltham Park Road, with Bishop Hero Blair expected to deliver the sermon.

One of the highlights of the week will be Kingston's first Boat Fest, which is expected to be a spectacle for local families and visitors on at Kingston Harbour. More than 50 sail and power boats will parade the harbour from Port Royal to Victoria Pier, and back to Port Royal.

Ocean Boulevard is to be transformed into a festival village as well, featuring such elements as a Food Fest, Crazy Bike Show, Classic Car Show, Kiddies' Village, exhibition on the shipping and maritime industries, and ending with a Music Fest featuring some of Jamaica's leading performers.
