– as annual bridge light-up, boat parade turns three
THE Linden Bridge is set to come alive on Sunday night as the Linden Youth Leaders group hosts its third Annual Bridge Light-up and Boat Parade.
The event, which will kick off at 18:00hrs, promises to be one of clean fun and excitement for the thousands of people that will be there. The crowd will be entertained by local talent before the bridge sparkles with lights.
The activities will be taking place on the Wismar shore of the Mackenzie-Wismar Bridge, and admission is absolutely free.
According to President of the Linden Youth Leaders, Naomi Marshall, the group is aiming to promote cohesion within the mining town of Linden through the activity.
“We are trying to create cohesiveness amongst the people of Linden by having persons of all ages, races, genders, beliefs and religion in one area that will be filled with good energy. We want persons to forget about differences and live in unity,” Marshall told the Buzz.
Additionally, the organisation is aiming to give toys to over 3,000 children, and hampers to about 100 elderly persons.
The Linden Youth Leaders is a non-governmental organisation that was formed in 2016 to show the positive developments taking place in the mining town of Linden.
Over the years, the organisation has tremendously impacted the Linden community, and is seen as one of the most active youth groups in all of Region Ten (Upper Demerara-Berbice).
