MAS MANIA: Rain or shine we jammin still
It's early juggling but the spirits are high as Xaymacans take over the streets of New Kingston for carnival road march, 2017. Flags of all colours complement the bright costumes that appear to be pushing back at the dark clouds hovering overhead.
Revellers are getting down and dirty to the big bad soca. Even with the threat of rain, smiles are bright and mugs are full with revellers chanting rain or shine we jammin still.
"I have been to many carnivals. It doesn't matter if I get wet I just want to have a good time," Florian Maniere, who is from Martinique, said.
Similarly, Tristanna Ebanks who arrived from the Cayman Islands for road march on Friday, said "rain cannot stop soca".
"I will be here next year," the reveller promised.
