The vibe and energy surrounding Bacchanal Treasures continues to build with week 3 showing undoubtedly the greatest intensity thus far. Even the slight drizzle that greeted many of the early revelers was not enough to either dampen the vibe or detour the patrons from coming out to enjoy another Friday night at the Mas Camp.
With drink filled cups and soca in their ears, everybody was in a great mood half way into the night with a little over 3 hours remaining before the scheduled 2am lock off, the crowds had already started to fill the gaps in one of Kingston’s more spacious venues. No one could honestly say that the vibe was anything less than good; just enough to keep the patrons moving yet teasing them making them yearn for more with each passing minute. Credit must be given to Dj Billy and Dj Smoke representing the Renaissance Sound system. Both disc jockeys found the right blend of Dancehall and soca, both old and new to keep those in attendance jumping and raving.
The revelers found great interest in the giveaways and specials from the Sponsors; the team from Matterhorn had specials on their Cigarettes, Appleton’s Mug Madness continued, Digicel’s Booth was a constant buzz with activity as their games have become something that many look forward to as an opportunity to win credit, shirts and phones from a brand that Bacchanal supporters have always embraced.
Speaking of embrace, patrons where seen enjoying a bag of chips along with their drink as Jamaica Producer’s St. Mary chips (Banana, Plantain, Cassava and Potato) continued to find their way through the crowd and into the hands of the patrons. Patrons like Carlos DeSilva were quite pleased after their first taste of the Cassava Chips, “I was always interested to taste it ever since I heard about it and I must say that I am pleasantly surprised that it tastes as good as it does”, commented Mr. Desilva. A sentiment that was echoed by Roxy, a Brand Promoter from Matterhorn, “I never expected it to taste this good” was her comment after her first mouthful.
St. Mary’s Chips are certainly becoming a crowd favorite of the Friday night series as patrons continue to look out for the giveaways each night. Patrons can continue to enjoy their favorite chips, with a good drink and enjoy the vibe at the Mas Camp for the next six weeks as Jamaica Producers has pledged to continue on this drive for the remainder of the Carnival season.
