It could very well be a battle royale at Bushy Park on Sunday when 18 soca artists go up against each other to see who will wear the Sweet Soca and Party Monarch crowns.
There are eight artists, including defending monarch Mikey in the Sweet Soca and 10 in the Party Monarch competition, which he is also defending.
Today workmen were busy at the Soca Royale venue erecting the stage, setting up the speakers and making sure everything is in place ahead of the rehearsals which are scheduled for tomorrow.
The portable light towers were also lined up waiting to be turned on, the bathrooms were in place and tomorrow stall owners are expected to be setting up in their spaces.
The prediction is for good weather at the event which is billed as a family outing. (DS)
