This was the first year JSun Photo attended the Grace Jamaican Jerk Festival. The event was much larger than I anticipated. The participation and turn-out was spectacular.
The event seemed very organized, we had to pay for parking but there was a complimentary trolley service from the parking lot to the venue’s gate. As you passed the gate’s security you could smell the aroma of Caribbean cuisine in the air. The place buzzed with patrons sampling products from different vendors and sponsors. There were three stages at the venue with the media tent located to the back of the main stage. We setup our equipment for our interviews then set out to mingle with the crowd to take photos and partake in the food sampling.
Miss Haiti the Model was our “hostess with the mostest” for the evening. Dressed in her beautiful Euphoria Mas costume she conducted the interviews like a true professional. We had lunch at Scotchies as we were entertained by live performers. The event was truly an enjoyable one and we anxiously anticipate Jerk Fest 2016. Please enjoy these photos and video clips and I hope to see you all at Jerk Fest next year.
