For the last three years, Southern Californians have honed their reggae dancing skills at the annual Jamaica Night at the Shoppes at Chino Hills. Hosted by the Jamaica Tourist Board, the event encourages shoppers to get their reggae groove back. Scheduled for Saturday, August 28, 2010 from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m., this event is free and open to the public.
Jamaica Night will give attendees the opportunity to learn that Jamaica is an exciting destination that offers a unique and rich culture for everyone to enjoy. There will be free reggae dance lessons by local group Chinyere’s Island Groove, live reggae music by Einstein, fire-eating by Eddie Olive & the Caribbean Gems, plus exhibits and giveaways.
“This lively event will bring the flavor of Jamaica to visitors and residents of Chino Hills, giving shoppers the opportunity to feel, taste and soak up the culture of Jamaica for one night,” said John Lynch, Jamaica’s Director of Tourism. “It’s the perfect preview for what travelers can expect from a Jamaican vacation, as well as a chance to spread the word that with the abundance of airlift options it’s easier to slip away to Jamaica for a last-minute summer or early fall getaway.”
Representatives from Apple Vacations, Pomona Travel and the Jamaica Tourist Board will be available to help travelers plan their next getaway.
