Negril, Westmoreland: DREAM Weekend's annual Xtreme Wet and Wild party tends to give its patrons a new experience and Sunday's staging at Kool Runnings Adventure Park in Negril wasn't any different.

Despite the rain, by 5:00 pm approximately 5,000 patrons were seen enjoying the lazy river, pools, waterslides and the 'wet zone', which showered them with water. This was probably one of the rare events where the females were not fussy about messing up their hairstyles, as half-way through the event some abandoned wigs, throwing them on the ground. Not even patrons located in the VIP section were spared from the drenching, as those in general admission drenched them with buckets, bottles of water and water guns.

Seen soaking up in the fun were dancehall deejay Bounty Killer, US-based deejay Popeye Caution and deejay Elephant Man.

Among the deejay's that kept the dancefloor active at the food-and-drink inclusive party were those from Coppershot Disco, Tony Matterhorn, Renegade, Chromatic, DJ Nicco and DJ Lank.

"This has been one of the best staging. The energy is at a 150 per cent. People are living up to the game and this party continues to be the wettest and wildest in the Caribbean. The energy here is one that one cannot be prepared for, it just have to be experienced. The Smirnoff drink mixes, the music and the patrons are amazing," said Dream Weekend's and XTreme Wet and Wild's director Kamal Bankay.

A few hours later, Kool Runnings Adventure Park played host to another high energy party dubbed Red Stripe Beer Vibes. With the likes of Flava Unit Disco, Jazzy T and DJ Kentucky at the music booth, the hits came coming which resulted in non-stop dancing.
