Yesterday, the highly anticipated National Youth Rally, which took place at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, had to come to an abrupt and unexpected halt due to heavy rainfall.
The March Past ceremony had to be paused, and the event ended earlier than planned due to adverse weather conditions, much to the disappointment of Education Minister Daryll Mathew and the attendees.
The intermittent showers forced student marchers to leave the field a few times, and eventually, the education minister called an end to the event to ensure the safety and well-being of the participants.
