(CMR) The Queen's Jubilee Celebration, which celebrates Queen Elizabeth's 70th year on the throne, kicks off today in the Cayman Islands with the Proclamation of the Official Lighting of the Beacons at 2 pm.
In celebration of Her Majesty's 70th year as Monarch and Head of the Commonwealth, more than 1,500 beacons will be lit throughout the United Kingdom and UK Overseas Territories.
The beacons will enable local communities to pay tribute to her as part of the official Platinum Jubilee Weekend of celebration from 2-6 June 2022.
At 2 pm in Heroes Square, our local Town Crier will undertake the Proclamation announcing the lighting of the beacons later this evening.
The Lighting of the Beacons will be an online event here in the Cayman Islands.
