The crowds were not as large as in recent years purportedly due to the ongoing state of public emergency, but the energy was high throughout Linstead in St Catherine on Grand Market night, December 24.
People were busy buying and selling, partying and doing other activities on virtually all streets, especially Fletcher’s Avenue and King Street.
The energy was fever pitch especially in three main areas where sound systems were set up. Those large party spots were the public transportation centre on King Street, the plaza where KFC is located, and the area in and around Texaco gas station also on King Street.
The short video below gives an idea of the crowd at the Texaco location where the largest party was held:
Meanwhile, the police, shortly after 4 o’clock in the morning, were busy ensuring all major sound systems were off, but the crowds remained in the streets until daylight.
Throughout the night, Rose Duncan Park in the town centre was also very busy. It was transformed into a fun zone with attractions such as bounce-about, trampoline, ferris wheel, video games, and face painting – as shown below.
