Caribbean Pavilion

An enormous terrace dotted with palm trees, cafe tables and flags of eight Caribbean areas distinguished the Caribbean Pavilion whose main building housed a large restaurant. Decorated with colorful headgear, the restaurant featured steel bands and calypso singers and Caribbean dancers as daily entertainment. Dishes served were regional fare; pumpkin soup, suckling pig, plantain (a variation of banana) and a desert made of fresh coconut milk.

Two low, glass-faced structures with Spanish tile roofs exhibited and offered for sale many island products; tortoise-shell jewelry, straw hats and bags, wood carvings and ceramics.
