For details on the Anguilla Day ceremony, read this article in The Anguillian newspaper. Here is an excerpt

Anguilla Day was celebrated Tuesday June 1 as uniformed bodies converged on the Ronald Webster Park for the official parade witnessed by many officials and members of the private and public sectors. The parade comprised contingents from the Police, Scouts and Guides, Cub Scouts, Guides, Brownies, Pathfinders, Boys and Girls Brigade and Cadets. The various organisations were inspected by Chief Minister, Osbourne Fleming, accompanied by Commissioner of Police Keithly Benjamin and Parade Commander, Allan Carty....
In the afternoon, everyone moves from The Valley to Sandy Ground for the boat race. A large crowd follows the boats from the shore in their cars -- sort of a moving traffic jam, with lots of honking and yelling and fun. But an even bigger crowd stays on the beach at Sandy Ground, partying and eating until the boats return late in the day.
