J’Ouvert that is. And for the curious and the culture-conscious, a good and quick summation of J’Ouvert can be found here.
By now the revelers would have tramped, they would have wiled and wailed, and laid aside every weight and care. In times past all good things would have come to an end around 11am. This year, thanks to the organizers of J’Ouvert Beach Chill 2010, the party continues on a beach without sand, or what has been dubbed “The People’s Official J’Ouvert Chill Zone!”
For those who are so blessed to participate and be in the place, there is the guarantee of an afternoon filled to overflowing with fun, relaxation and sizzling entertainment for both adults and children. As if that weren’t enough to entice, there is the added lure of an 18 feet water slide and foam party! “Well my peace!” as my sister would say in full Crucian accent. LOL
For the rest of us (myself included) we are invited to live vicariously through the live online stream here and please stay tuned for Dasheen’s followup post with pictures.
The big idea behind this historic and what is promised by organizers to be an annual event: ‘Revive the Revelry and not the Rivalry!’
From the looks of things that should be no problem!
Love All Ova!!!
