Fun, People, Public Events

Last week Curacao celebrated the first year of a pretty fantastic event; the Curacao Reggae Festival. Brought to us by the “Bob Marley Tribute” legend, mister Junior Tecla, in collaboration with Landhuis Brievengat. It was a pretty jamming evening and the crowd was soaring high above the music (ha ha!).
