The rain did not impede the realization of the cultural gala for the celebrations of August 2, when, in 1978, this territory was officially designated as the Isle of Youth, previously Isle of Pines, by proclamation.

 

 

 

Recalling that moment, artists of yesterday and present, called by José Martí art instructors brigade, met each other in front of the Caribe movie-theater to offer to the public a different and a very Cuban gala.

 

 

 

Professor Julio César Sánchez delighted the presents with his poem La isla es una muchacha, while the song of the documentary film Una isla en el tiempo of Luisa Herrera Martínez was accompanied by an occasional trio of dance.

The performance of the soloists Oeldis, Isabel Romero and Roilech Moreno and the troubadour María Rosario were the other presentations that embellished the night which finished with the group of Sucu-suco Son por seis.

 

 

 

With the motivation of recalling the feat of those young people that came to foment the program of economic and social development in the territory, special meetings in working centers and sport festivals for children and young people were carried out.
