Luckily the mud did not damper the mood as people continued enjoying themselves walking from stall to stall whether getting their face-painted, or standing in the incredibly long line for food and drink or purchasing at the variety stalls, while trying not to lose their shoe in the mud. Others decided to keep clean by staying put under the tents while enjoying the stage show hosted by Dr. Winston Tolan, watching dance and singing performances. These spectacular performers included the beautiful dancers Rachel and Chantal Biersay, Savitri Tolan visiting from Miami the Amala Gita group, the Rakesh Yankaran group all the way from Trinidad who not only show cased their dancing skills but also sang. The spectators were also entertained by the melodious voices of Dr. Winston Tolan, Gam Bankersingh, Carcel Williams, the Bankersingh sisters and the Tassa Clarendon group.
The audience was also entertained as they were able to answer fairly simple questions and win lovely prizes, many enthusiastically ran to the stage despite the mud for their chance to win. Despite the weather the day turned to be a culturally filled day that proved despite race or colour we are all united together as Jamaicans.
