Deejays tuned up their soca sets and branded Zoukie Trucking trucks revved up their engines to signal the start of UWI Carnival Jamaica 2019 along Ring Road at the University of the West Indies (UWI), Mona on Saturday. Scores of socaphiles — comprising UWI and UTech, Jamaica students — palanced along the Ring Road in faculty-branded costumes including the UWI Marketing Association costume; Goddess of Iris; the Medical Sciences department's Animal Instinct costume, several versions of self-designed costumes; and Monday Wear attire.

In addition to complimentary “perk ups” that were provided by Nescafé coffee servers along the course, cool-down moments were handled by the WATA team, and via foam blowers courtesy of FLOW. Libations included cocktail mixes from J Wray & Nephew, Tru-Juice, or Red Bull, which introduced its new Tropical Fruits Yellow Edition, among other brands.

Disc jocks including Triple X, Bishop Escobar, DJ Franco, DJ Kashmatic, DJ Richie Ras, and a host of others interchanged sets along the way. Indeed, it was the sweet soca music blasting from the speakers that kept revellers going from noon until late that night at the Bands Festival after-party at The Jungle on campus.
