The Jamaica Tourist Board is excited to announce its participation in the 38th annual Houston International Festival (iFest) April 18-19 & 24-25 in Lower Sam Houston Park in downtown Houston. Jamaica’s very own reggae sensation Rootz Underground will be performing on Saturday, April 25 at 6:00 p.m. Rootz Underground will be available after the show for an exclusive autograph signing session at the Jamaica Tourist Board booth.
Guests will also have the chance to take a “piece of Jamaica” home with them via photos taken in front of a Jamaica backdrop.
