Entertainment for the entire family summed up last Saturday's staging of Regional 1 in PAN 2016 at Independence Park, Black River, St.Elizabeth.

PAN 2016, formerly known as the CB Pan Chicken Championship, saw 28 competitors vying for pan chicken supremacy and the title of Grand Champion. Prior to the announcement of the winners, the entertainment onstage was guided by comedian and media personality Dufton Shepherd and popular host and DJ, Badda Bling.

Gospel singer Kevin Downswell captivated the audience with his slew of familiar hits including crowd-pleasers Stronger and his new hit All the Way. Ding Dong and his Ravers Clavers crew had patrons dancing the night away with hits including Syvah, Shampoo, Wul Up, Gas and Bad Man Forward, Bad Man Pull Up. Songs such as Jail, Missing You and One More Night were the icing on the cake during Busy Signal's set.

"The people of Black River welcomed the PAN family with open arms and it was such an amazing day. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive so we will definitely return next year," shared CB Foods Brand Manager Alicia Bogues.

"The turnout and energy from the patrons at Regional 1 is what's good about Red Stripe's partnership with PAN 2016. It augurs well for the rest of the competition," commented Michelle Cunningham, assistant brand manager of major sponsor Red Stripe.

Seprod's Group Marketing Manager Matthew Samuda said: "PAN 2016 is off to an amazing start. What we experienced in Black River was more than any of us could've expected."
