Attendees of the show are advised to arrive early so that they can enjoy the music and atmosphere prior to the show. They are also invited to further immerse themselves into the Caribbean culture through the Caribbean jewelry that will be on hand, as well as the famous popsicles from “Island Pops of Crown Heights.”
