POND ISLAND, Sint Maarten – After teaming up with the carnival promotion group Rio Productions for a hugely successful 50 th anniversary of carnival this year, TelEm Group says it will teaming up with the group once again – this time for the 8th Annual Lighted Parade through the streets of Philipsburg slated for July 5th.
Organizer, Brenda Wathey is aiming to turn the event into the region’s brightest and most attended night parade and is partnering with some of the best in the industry to achieve this.
Earlier this week, Rio Productions announced that it joined with the ever-popular event promotion group Kalaboom. The Oualichi Festival/ SXM Best Weekend will run from July 4th – 7th , showcasing a host of musical performances under the umbrella of promotional company Kalaboom Events.
The combination of Rio Productions and Kalaboom is predicted to turn this lighted parade into the most spectacular one yet! “Both groups are into the promotion of culture in the community and so it is a win-win for all of us,” said TelEm Group Marketing & Sales Officer, Stephani Jong-Loy.
Stephani explained that for the first time, the annual Lighted Parade will be featured as part of The Oualichi Festival/ SXM Best Weekend and will take place on the second day of the lineup. The entire roster consists of a night of free concerts, premium parties, the lighted parade, and a fun-packed beach party. Performances by artists such as “Farmer Nappy”, “Triple K” have
already been announced, with many more to be added as this week goes by.
She said this is the first year that TelEm will join Rio’s Lighted Parade as a partner, and the company is pleased to be part of an event which will attract revelers both Dutch and French as well as participants from the surrounding islands.
“TelEm Group expects nothing less than a high-energy event to once again connect with our customers and the general public on the Dutch and French sides of the island. We will certainly be setting out to make the lighted parade a night to remember for everyone,” added the Marketing & Sales Officer.
