Extreme sports festival

Dates: 31/03/07
Country: Caribbean Pacific - Cuba
Extreme sports festival

Cool guys 'n' gals touting EU T-shirts and caps with their kit for extreme sports are expected to attract more than 2000 young people to Playa Megano, some 20 km from Havana, on 31 March to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the EU in style.

The Festival - organised by the EU delegation in Cuba - will offer events for some 150 Cuban practitioners of skateboarding, in-line skating, BMX, windsurfing, kite surfing and skydiving. Other attractions catering to the younger generation of Cubans (16-25's) expected to show up for the occasion will aim to raise the visibility of the EU among the Cuban population, who can expect to walk away tired and exhilarated with arms full of promotional materials and prizes from mini-competitions and raffles organised throughout the day.
