Just about 150 revellers turned out today for the second annual Orange Hill Carnival.
The Independence Day jump which is expected to be a day of fun and frolic, was scheduled to leave the Orange Hill pavilion in St James for 9 a.m., but got underway just after 11 a.m.
That didn’t damper the party mood of the revellers though, who wined and frolicked all the way up to Gilkes Village, onto Apes Hill and then onto the highway.
The Carnival will conclude back at the pavilion for an after party.
Organizer Shelly-Ann Hinds said the main reason for the carnival was to bring the community together and she was expecting a very good day. (DB)
