NEGRIL, Westmoreland:

All is now set for the fourth staging of Escape Entertainment's JB Overproof Rum-sponsored Great Escape Easter Weekend party series, which will take place in Negril, Westmoreland, from April 3 to 6.

Denzel 'Fada' Scott, the spokesman and promoter of the event, said his organisation is upbeat and expects that this year's event will be larger and more exciting than previous years. He said anticipation is quite high and that from

all indications, a memorable weekend experience is in store for patrons.

"I think it is fair to say that the Great Escape Weekend has arrived. It is amazing what this means to the community as an authentic Negril brand," Scott said.

The event, which is being staged under the theme, 'Best Easter Ever', will see party fans across Jamaica and other parts of the globe flocking to the resort town, popularly known as the 'Capital of Casual', to enjoy themselves on the Easter weekend.


The list of events include 'Liquid Fusion', which will be staged on Good Friday (April 3) at Cayenne Beach; 'Stoplight Affair Colours Party' and 'Escape J'Ouvert' and paint party on April 4; and 'Soakin Wett' water party on Sunday, April 5, at Cayenne Beach and Chances, respectively.

Easter Monday will see revellers returning to Cayenne Beach for the staging of the 'Wet Dreams All-White Party'.

The Great Escape Weekend was conceptualised by a group of Negril based promoters who decided to pool resources to establish Negril's first weekend party series instead of directly competing with each other.

"Basically, we wanted to contribute to the development of our community. Now we're on an irreversible path to greatness," said Negril businessman Sean Greenfield, who heads the group.
