It was a time for feting, partying and lots of water-filled explosions.
For seven and a half hours on Sunday, the Wildey Astro Turf was turned into a fun zone with paint, water foam and a 30-foot water slide during Water Xplosion.
It was organised by Trendy Boyz Entertainment, which include members, Andr? Ellis, Akiel Cumberbatch and Kemar Brathwaite.
Cumberbatch told Barbados TODAY that the event, originally slated to be held from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m, but it was extended to 9:30 p.m. and catered to more than 500 people.
Patrons were treated to performances from Statement, Legend The Band, HypaSounds, Crimeson and Crab Soldier, Renaissance Entertainment, Mr. Levi and Fari and Lady Essence.†
The fete was squabble- and violence-free, said Cumberbatch who noted that approximately 10 policemen along with four security guards were present.
Trendy Boyz’ motivation for holding the fete was to do something different and to incorporate all those elements which were at previous wet fetes, Cumberbatch stated.
Two†patrons, Degory Applewhaite and Techarla Lewis, said the event was fun.
Applewhaite said: “It was really water exploding, mainly the foam and water was cool and [those] DJs could play. There were not any fights and it was an extra hype wet fete … with mostly females and the dress code was beach wear.”
“It was a really wonderful fete, I would do it again anytime. I would have just liked the performers to perform longer and for the fete to end later,” said Lewis. (MR)
