From about 1:30 a.m. some of the 34 bands were on the road travelling from three different points to converge first on Harbour Road and then onto Spring Garden for the climax.
As is the custom, the paint, the mud and the oil came out and left a multicoloured stream of patrons along the roads, and when the rains hit, it only added another element into the mix.
By the time the sun rose on Saturday morning and bands were dispersing, in masses of soaked, exhausted and in some cases totally inebriated revellers, some were already saying they would repeat the experience with relish the very next night.
