Junkanoo performance at Bahamas Tourism Christmas Mix N Mingle
The well attended event provided an opportunity for the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism to convey thanks to its Florida partners and friends for the generous outpouring of love for the country in the wake of the devastating Hurricane Dorian. The category 5 hurricane had a catastrophic effect on Freeport, Grand Bahama and the Abaco Islands, two of The Bahamas’16 unique island destinations.

On a high note, King shared that although The Bahamas had just missed its projected 7 million visitor mark in 2019, due to Hurricane Dorian, the year 2020 is being targeted as the year of hope to meet that mark. She said, “Grand Bahama is coming on strong and although it may be a little while for Abaco, they are still rocking.”
