Staff and guests of the Ocean Two Resort & Residences are still singing the popular songs of Crop Over 2017 and feeling the vibes on the southcoast.
This was evident during their fifth annual Kadooment Fever event, at the Dover-based property, where staff and guests sang and danced to pulsating calypso and steel-pan music while fully enjoying a memorable evening. A number of staff members also modeled colourful and attractive costumes to further reflect the spirit of the season.
The event, staged just before the big Kadooment Monday street party, proved to be a warm-up to the major event and not even rains were able to stop the jam as the party was shifted indoors when showers associated with a tropical wave poured on the outside.
Operations Manager Natalie King said the annual event was created to give guests a Crop Over experience and expose them to some of the activities that make-up the island’s annual Summer Festival.
A memorable element of the party was the appearance of popular calypsonian Mikey, who got a rousing response from both locals and visitors as he belted out such hits – This Is How I Enjoy me Life, We Loose , Level Up and Fetting and Brass.
Among the visitors enjoying the event were American Shirley Blazejezyk, and friend Marlon Eastmond from Chicago, who were staying at Ocean Two for the first time.
“It is a great event coinciding with the Festival … the resort is great and the staff are nice,” said Blazejezyk.
In between the modeling of costumes, dancing with Mother Sally, staff and guests also enjoyed loads of fun and laughter as they showed their skills in limbo dancing.
“Our staff and guests look forward to this event in the Crop Over season and we are already thinking about next year ,” said King.
