ORGANISERS of Portland's Boston Jerk Fest are pulling out all the stops for its 13th staging at the Boston Community Centre in that parish on Sunday, March 31.
"This festival will be the biggest we have seen so far," said Camille Miller, the festival's senior marketing manager.
The festival will also feature entertainment from acts including I-Octane, Turbulance, Chuck Fender, American-based band, Inna Sense, Jimmy Riley, Tinga Stewart, Hero, Dada, PZ, Ernest Wilson, Cornel Campbell and Eddie Fitzroy.
"We have not even had a press launch and the calls have been pouring in," Miller said.
"Neira and Associates, a reputable multi media organisation out of Vero Beach, Florida, will be sending down a film crew, and we have been fielding calls from several other international outlets expressing similar sentiments," she continued.
Miller said her team has been working tirelessly to ensure that the Boston Jerk Festival not only lives up to its billing as the biggest single day culinary event in the English speaking Caribbean but also an event that will leave a positive impact on the small Boston community.
"This is an event for the entire family," she said. "Gates will open at 10 am as there is a kiddies village with probably the widest array of rides and attractions ever seen at a festival. There will be jerked wild hog (Maroon style), jerked lion fish, reindeer, rabbit, goat, fish, yam and, of course, the best chicken and pork in the world."
