KINGSTON, Jamaica -  The Jamaica 50 Secretariat has advised that the Independence Grand Gala is still on at the National Stadium tomorrow (August 6), to being 5:30 pm.

Dubbed: ‘Tributes in Gold’, the gala will highlight the significant achievements of the nation over the past 50 years, which the Secretariat says will serve an inspiration to a ‘Nation on a Mission’. 

According to the Secretariat there will be over 3,000 performers with about 1,500 costumed actors.  Uniformed groups - the army, the correctional services, the Island Special Constabulary Force (ISCF), and the youth uniform groups will also be on show. The show will close with a "scintillating pyrotechnic and fireworks display".

The gala will be presented in three acts – ‘Eternal Father Bless Our Land;’ ‘Natural Mystic’; and ‘Tomorrow’s People,’ and will feature dancing, choral and orchestral music, popular entertainers, giant screen video projections.
