THE 14th staging of the Grace Tropical Rhythms Port Royal Seafood Festival took place on Monday at the Port Royal football field in Kingston.

Promoted by Jenny Jenny Productions for the past 10 years, the event saw patrons enjoying seafood all day. The children were not left out of the mix, as they participated in various rides and attractions which kept them entertained.

As the day became night, the likes of Beenie Man, Charly Black, Sanchez and gospel singer Jabez provided an array of musical delights.

Promoter Jennifer Small explained the growth of the event.

“The event has grown from an open space in the town to the football field for better control and variety. The move was also done to create more space and remove the traffic jam,” said Small.

Asked what has been among the highlights of the festival over the years, she said: “The scholarships given to top GSAT students in Port Royal. This event also allows individuals and companies to thrive, while allowing the town of Port Royal to enjoy the spotlight and some buzz.”

Among the new elements added to the event this year were the Phillip Paulwell Fishing Competition, Excelsior Bingo with Ram Puss, and a donkey cart tour of Port Royal.

Small says she plans to make the event bigger and better by incorporating suggestions from patrons and addressing their concerns.
