An increased police presence at last night’s Foreday Morning jam made for a smooth and enjoyable jump up for all.
Revelers appeared to have heeded the call of the Royal Barbados Police Force (RBPF) to keep the peace as there were no reports of disruptions up to 5 o’clock this morning when bands were still making their way from Harbour Road onto Spring Garden.
After getting off to a late start, they made their way from the various starting points including Queens Park, BIDC car park and Carlisle House.
They were led off by the band 1 Trini and a Bajan, and were followed by Mixed Nutz, Schooner Jammers, Soca Chippers, Mojito and many more.
Intermittent showers did not dampen the party mood as revelers chipped along the highway, singing along to some of this year’s soca tunes.
One of the most popular songs on the road was Bashment Soca King Stiffy’s ‘Tek off Something’. He also performed live on the music trucks of several bands. (DB)
