The usually quiet and lazy atmosphere in downtown Kingston on a Sunday was changed this week as thousands of persons travelled to the commercial district for three events that could not have been more different.

Roadblock for God

Fuelled by the Holy Spirit, members of Pentecostal Tabernacle left their church building and took to the streets for the start of Mission Convention 2012.

Under the theme 'A Remnant Chosen by Grace', the church members took their message to the people on Wildman Street seeking to save souls.

Labourites arise

It might have been dubbed a 'delegates conference', but the controversy surrounding the legality of the nomination of three deputy leaders, plus a desire to show that the Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) remains strong, was enough to drag thousands of Labourites to the Jamaica Conference Centre.

With returned JLP leader Andrew Holness in fighting form, the Labourites left the conference energised, their differences settled or swept under the carpet and determined that the campaign for the next general election is under way.

Pan chicken bash

It was a different kind of sprit, which pulled thousands of persons to the waterfront in downtown Kingston for the CB Pan Chicken grand finals.

With quality pan chicken on offer, plus an exciting entertainment package, a good time was had by all despite the smoke that blanketed the area. But what is pan chicken without smoke?
