KING LEO Presents Riddim Runway

Friday, August 28, 2009

King Leo Promotions is gearing up for their 2nd annual Riddim Runway, Reggae Festival and Fashion Showcase on Saturday, September 19th and Sunday, September 20th in downtown Ft. Myers starting at 3 pm. Riddim Runway is a fusion of live Caribbean music and fashion and was created by King Leo Promotions as a way of giving back/giving thanks by providing support to children’s charities. Each year, profits from Riddim Runway are allocated to children charities both in the US and the Caribbean. The beneficiaries of this year’s show will be Darlene & Friends locally and L.O.A.F. (Love Over All Foundation) in Jamaica.

We are proud to announce that we have teamed up with Hotel Indigo to bring this festival to beautiful downtown Fort Myers. Live music, vendors and designers will be displayed on Broadway between First and Main (Broadway will be shut down for the event). The fashion show will be held inside Hotel Indigo and there will be children’s activities in the courtyard of the hotel. Each year we strive to bring the best musical talent and we’re excited about bringing Kymani Marley along with Ky-Enie, Keisha Martin and Kehv. Featured designers this year include R. Milton, Cooyah and Eye Collection.

“It’s great to see the community coming together to enjoy music, culture and fashion and at the same time helping our future generations both here and in native West-Indian Countries”, says Stacy Lee-Williams, VP of Marketing for King Leo Promotions who celebrates her birthday each year with this annual non-profit event.
