Bequia brings in record number of visitors over holiday season
Bequia saw a record numbers of visitors over the holiday period, with yachts of all sizes thronging Admiralty Bay, and bars and restaurants throughout the island bustling day and night.
Thousands enjoyed the climax on New Yearâs Eve, when half ton of pyro burst over the harbour on the stroke of midnight in a spectacular fireworks display.
The brainchild of Sir James Mitchell, the all-volunteer Bequia New Yearâs Eve Celebration Committee is solely responsible for organizing and mounting this magnificent New Yearâs Eve show each year. Funds are raised entirely through the generous contribution
of private individuals, local businesses and well-wishers, with import concessions provided by the Ministry of Finance and permission to import granted by the Commissioner of Police.â
Speaking after yet another successful fireworks display, Sir James commented: âA good idea needs dedication to remain a reality. Our fearless âBang Gangâ has earned the gratitude of all of Bequia and its many visitors, with their continued commitment and expertise.â
