Bordering parishes St James, Trelawny and St Ann maintained their 'fun-filled party capital' dominance last weekend, closing out the rest of the island, taking on the status, Jamaica's carousing central.
In addition to three nights of the Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival, visitors to the island's north coast experienced the hippest and hottest beach party this side of the world.
Tagged 'Sunscape/Red Stripe Beach Party', the event, transformed Chill Out Beach in Long Bay, St James, attracting scores of the island's celebrated party people.
Strategically positioned to grab the jazz crowd hungry for daytime excitement, it took Oliver McIntosh, Philip Palmer and Andrew Bellamy, organisers of the beach jouvert, to woo what could easily be described as A-listers and yuppies in one space.
The three men drew on the world's coolest beer, Red Stripe, to partner with, succeeding in meeting the expectations of those in attendance.
"We are always looking forward to completing a party experience for patrons and we were able to do that at Sunscape. The party was well executed and gave us a chance to interact with our customers," remarked Erin Mitchell, brand manager, Red Stripe.
For The Gleaner's social team, this was the party to be last weekend!
