3rd Annual JA Independence Fest

On Saturday August 2nd we were involved with a great little community event held at The Island Taste Restaurant at the Train Stop in Mt Holly NJ. It was the third year for the fest held in honor of Jamaica's Independence Day which is August 6th. The day was filled with Music, Food, Games, give aways and just great times celebrating with listeners of the show and all of the people from the local area. Photobucket Photobucket
