The jam session began just hours after the conclusion of the Reggae and Soca Band-o-Rama Explosion which was held at The Sandbox, Maynard’s Park, Cayon.
Commencing sometime after 7:00 a.m., revellers lined the streets of the village preparing themselves to engage in the activity which was to have one they shall not soon forget.
With merrymakers positioned at its front and at its back, the Kollision Band made its way through the streets of the village providing musical entertainment along the length of the route.
Revellers, most of whom were dressed in the usual “jam wear”, seemed to have enjoyed the company of their fellow-revellers, the pulsating and rhythmic sounds of the Kollision Band and the Kollision Band.
Members of the Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force (RSCNPF) and the St. Kitts Nevis Defence Force were out in their numbers ensuring that peace and order was maintained during the j’ouvert.
Head of Security for Green Valley, Sergeant Carl Caines, told MiyVue.com that there were one or two small fights which erupted during the festivity but noted that because the security forces were on hand, the situations were quickly brought under control. He said, barring those incidents, the j’ouvert was incident-free.
The partying is not finished yet though! The 15th annual Green Valley celebrations climaxes with the “Spectakula & Greenaramic Green Mist Parade and Last Lap jam.
This event will take place along the streets of the village and is expected to culminate at the Festival Site.
