There is still a lot of party to go before the end of the year. However, the organisers of South Beach Saturday are already claiming the coveted title for Party of the Year after last Saturday's event.
More than 300 party people from uptown, the expat community, and as far as Kingston, converged on the fabulous Seawind Beach Club for what is now a staple on their calendar.
Promoted by Blue Island Promotions and PVS Entertainment, the men behind the event, Alexis Monteith and Vijay Sadarangani, tell Today that they are now settled in their new home on the waters of Montego Freeport.
With the ocean as their backdrop, the pool terrace a dance floor, this latest edition featured international VJ (video jockey) Julian Serrano, who plays in some of the most popular clubs in the United States. Serrano thumped a musical mix of electronic dance music and international rhythms.
Using the Calypso Restaurant patio as the VIP area and the Seawind Beach Club pool terrace as the main area, the promoters had a huge projector screens that carried the music videos of the songs played by VJ Julian, whose booth had a backdrop lighting display.
Most spectacular were the three bars and a food station serving sancocho soup and pulled pork sandwiches. Nothing beats all-night alcohol like good food!
