BASSETERRE, ST. KITTS, DECEMBER 26TH 2013 (CUOPM) – Thousands of residents, returning nationals and visitors filled the main streets of downtown Basseterre, Thursday, December 26th in what has been described as a massive Jouvert- the best in its history.
As revellers in the Jouvert Bands – live music or hi-fi left their various locations, throngs including thousands from four visiting cruise ships, joined in a massive display of dancing, looking on, drinking and eating.
Never in the history of Jouvert had that the crowds patronize the bars and various stalls set up along Fort Street, Central Street, West Independence Square Street, and the Bay Road stretching from the General Post Office to the Ferry Terminal, long after the jamming ended.
Grand Masters, ‘Magic Fingers’ Ronnie Rascal, Small Axe Band, Nu Vybes International, Kollision Band and Tombstone provided music for revellers – costumed and non-costumed.
The Traditional WetDown Session display on Bank Street also drew the largest number of participants and onlookers.
