The 4th Annual Island Reggae Festival will also include a diabetes awareness initiative and the Red Cross will be on hand as part of a blood drive. As to how these community-health oriented aspects of the festival come into play Danny Perez explains, “This festival is a platform we created to celebrate our Pacific Islander culture through music and dance. We are also bringing awareness as to the diabetes epidemic our people face.”
