WHAT a fitting end it was yesterday to the 2011 Once Upon A Dynasty Bacchanal series. The high-energy soca season ended with the highly anticipated carnival parade which began on Mona Road in St Andrew.
The city was invaded as the grand bacchanal parade that featured 12 colourful costume sections and thousands of revellers gyrated throughout the streets of Kingston.
As the parade made its way towards Hope Road the revellers seemed oblivious to the scorching sun as they palanced and pushed their bumpas, to the pulsating beat of soca and dancehall music. The revellers were not the only ones partaking in this Bacchanal paradise as dozens of spectators could be seen perched atop buildings waving their flags and rags in unison with the crowd.
The 2011 Bacchanal heat was on and the 'people wanted wata' and got just that as there was a sudden downpour of rain. This went well with the 'soca drunkies' as they frolicked and gyrated. Throughout the rain the lovers of alcoholic beverages stayed glued beside the Smirnoff truck that served up intoxicating Smirnoff drink mixes. Entertainment was not only provided by Renaissance's DJ Smoke, Sparkles Disco and Trinidad's own DJ Private Ryan but by live performances as the socaphiles paraded with glitz and glamour throughout specific sections of the city.
As the parade made its way towards Mas Camp the revellers especially the females spared no one, not even the police and other security members.
Colour, soca, revellery, sun and rain all served to climax the 2011 carnival season.
