The annual Trench Town Community Festival starts tomorrow with a Nyahbinghi Night at Vin Lawrence Park at First Street.

Junior Lincoln, a member of the organising committee, said he is pleased with the growth of the festival which was first held over 10 years ago.

"It was really huge last year... It was a great feeling to see people at 2:00 and 3:00 am making their way to their vehicles," he told the Jamaica Observer.

On Friday, there will be Kids Fun Day at the Trench Town Multi Purpose Centre followed by a Mr and Miss Trench Town competition.

The highlight for Saturday is a 'Trod the Trod that Bob Marley Trod' fun run/walk, which starts at the Culture Yard on First Street.

An information fair at Vin Lawrence Park comprising booths offering financial services, health and career opportunities is also scheduled for Saturday.

The festival climaxes Sunday with a church service at the Multi-Purpose Community Centre. In the evening there will be a public lecture examining Trench Town and its contribution to Jamaican culture.
