Freeport, Bahamas - A Heartfelt Thanks Press Conference was held at the Grand Bahama Junkanoo Carnival Headquarters on Monday, April 20, 2015 to convey appreciation to everyone who gave so much of themselves to make the Bahamas Junkanoo Carnival kickoff at Taino Beach on the weekend a wonderful success.

Mrs. Ginger Moxey thanked all who helped make the moment in time memorable: especially Prime Minister the Rt. Hon. Perry Christie who conceptualized Junkanoo Carnival; Minister of Tourism the Hon. Obie Wilchcombe; Minister for Youth, Sports and Culture the Hon. Dr. Daniel Johnson; Minister for Grand Bahama the Hon. Dr. Michael Darville; Minister of Labour and National Insurance the Hon. Shane Gibson; and most of all, visitors to the island and Grand Bahamians.

Bahamas Junkanoo Carnival at Taino Beach drew an estimated 10,000 people on Friday, April 17, and 20,000 on Saturday, April 18, 2015.

No criminal incidents were reported to the police on the two nights of Junkanoo Carnival Kickoff on Grand Bahama, according to Chief Superintendent of Police Clarence Reckley; and he commended Grand Bahamians and visitors for being on their best behaviour.
