Trinidad - Tobago & Granada Pavilion

The pavilion attempted to emphasize the racial and religious background of the three islands and the culture that emerged from it. Mainly they did it through continuous shows of the country's folk dancing and music in a 250 seat theater. Eighty performers sang, folk danced, performed spectacular Limbo shows, and steel band music.

There was also steel band music on the lagoon in front of the pavilion's attractive bar which served a variety of beverages from the three islands.
