Quadrille Dancing at Heritagefest
Quadrille Dancing

Heritagefest was held at the Ranny Williams Center in Kingston on Sunday, October 23, 2005. It was originally to be held on Heroes weekend, however, due to heavy rains the event was postponed.

Heritagefest is a showcase of Jamaica's heritage. There was drama celebrating the lives of our National Heroes, Jamaican music, dance, food and much more. Showcased during the celebration were Maroon dancers, demonstrations of cooking techniques and 'old time' appliances and utensils such as tinning lamps and coal irons.

Bruk Pocket Jamaican

"Recently, this Jamaican won the 10 million special lottery for a dollar. As soon as the office of the Lottery Corporation was open on the following day, he was there to collect his winnings.

Graciously, he presented his winning ticket to the clerk and in his best English uttered his request "Me cum fi collect the 10 millian dallars, si me ticket ya".

After reviewing and checking the ticket with his manager, the clerk returned and requested on how he would like his payments. The Jamaican replied "Mi wan all a de moni now". "Unfortunately, Sir" the nervous clerk responded, "The procedures are that we can only give you one million now and the balance equally over the next 20 years".

Furious and agitated, the Jamaican asked for the manager, who re-iterated "Sir, my assistant is correct, it is the regulation of the corporation that we initially pay you one million dollars now with the balance paid to you equally over the next 20 years".

Outraged, the Jamaican slammed his hand on the desk and shouted in anger, "Oonu tek me fi idiat, me wan all a de moni now or oonu gi me bak me rass dallar!!"
