All set for Beach J’Ouvert on Saturday
All roads lead to Grizzly's Plantation Cove in Priory, St Ann, on Saturday for Bacchanal Jamaica's annual Beach J'Ouvert.
According to Bacchanal Jamaica's Michael McMorris, all is set for the event, which he said is guaranteed to be the fete of all fetes.
"The venue is being prepared for the comfort of all revellers to facilitate easy access to food and drink. The stage is being strategically placed to give all fans a good view of the acts no matter where they are in the venue," he said. "There will be ample parking on the venue to accommodate all who plan to drive. The paint is in hand and the hoses for water are all in good working condition."
Patrons are expected to wine up a storm. Like they did at the recent staging of Rum for Breakfast, Bacchanal Jamaica will set the vibe for the day with Patrick the Hype Man, who is promising to take things to a whole new level on the weekend.
He will be working with DJs Lantern, Nicco and Tyler, who are all experienced soca spinners. Kes the Band is also expected to perform at the event.
Although the event is drink-inclusive and shuttle service will be provided to and from the event, Michael Ammar Jr reminded patrons to drink responsibly.
"This is a premium drink inclusive event which means our bars will be stocked with the best. We do, however, remind the public that Beach J'Ouvert is 18 and over. We want everyone to have fun, but remember to drink and enjoy responsibly," he said.
"As usual, there is a paint-free zone for those patrons who wish to enjoy the revelry of the paint mas vicariously, and we urge our painted revellers to respect their wishes as we want all patrons to get the best from this party."
