To call Frenchmen Foreplay a party would be a mistake; it was an experience.

Pearly Beach, Ocho Rios was transformed into a funland last Sunday as hundreds of patrons came out in their best beach attire for Frenchmen's favourite finale event.

Partiers were greeted with refreshing Absolut Vodka cocktails, mere metres away from the signature Frenchmen welcome sign accessorised with palm trees and pink flamingos, which too, served as the preferred selfie spot.

Each patron's journey through the Foreplay funland varied as some left their belongings for safekeeping at the hospitality tent and headed for a swim or set sail on the Island Routes catamaran. Those who stayed on land explored the food options available, and with over a dozen booths some kept it safe with local favourites from YardStyle and Grace Gourmet Kitchen while others dabbled in international flavours from Oriental Express, From The Wok and Bangkok Café, Mama's Pasta, Off The Grill, Soul Food, Comfort Food and Ital Livin also provided great options. Island Blue Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee was on hand and Häagen-Dazs satisfied sweet-tooth cravings with creamy treats.

Meanwhile, fêters who required liquor options had much to choose from at the Absolut bar and bubbly from GH Mumm.

It was impossible to ignore the pulsating vibes created by the Foreplay DJs, and many flocked the Coca-Cola dance floors to enjoy the beats. Those looking for a cosier party vibe had their pick of ultra-lounges provided by Matterhorn and Martell.

As the sun began to set, and the party went into overdrive, Milani make-up artists repaired smudges and after a quick dab of lotion and a splash of perfume, ladies were back on the dance floor.

A late-evening drizzle did not put a damper on a Buju Banton set — sparked by the arrival of the Jamaican dancehall and reggae artiste. The party was brought to a satisfying climax with fireworks.
