Hundreds of revellers came out and participated in the East End/Long Look leg of the Rise & Shine Tramp which was deemed a success by the organisers.
The event started in the wee hours of Wednesday morning and lasted approximately five hours, as revellers partied to the musical stylings of the Nu Vybes band as well as joint soca monarch champions, VIBE.
Chairwoman of the East End/Long Look Festival Sub-committee Sandra Potter said the overall event was well received by patrons.
“From all indications, it was huge as usual. The people were very receptive of the two bands on the road and from all appearances, everyone had a good time,” Potter stated.
She further said the new two-band structure was also hit and gave revellers the option to choose.
“Everybody was able to jump and revel behind the band of their choice and that was always our intention to make sure that the people are able to enjoy themselves in a safe and friendly manner with music that they enjoy. This speaks to the focus and theme of our emancipation celebrations.”
