(April 19th-27th)

We've been surveying the carnival land in JA for 5 years now, and most happy to see the growth and progession of Bacchanal Jamaica as a whole.

And this year is going to very interesting with something to do every day (or night) for 10 straight days leading up to Road March (the parade) on Sunday April 27th. As Iwer says, it's Fete after Fete after Fete!

There are the not to be missed pillar events such as "Beach Jouvert", "Bachannal Jouvert", "Frenchmen Bazodee" and in its 3rd year "Sunrise Breakfast Party". Mid-week "I Love Soca" now holds it's own, and things look bright for 2nd year event "DUSK".

It's going to be a very busy weekend in Ochi Rios with Frenchmen's Breakfast Party "Rise Up" the morning before Beach Jouvert and Trini Jungle Juice's Cruise "SUN RUM FUN" on Easter Sunday morning; both newcomers to the Easter Weekend line-up.

And just when you think what else is new for 2014? The Roman are invading ... Caesars Army A.M.Bush will be gracing the shores of Jamaica!

The sounds of battle,
Rage all around. Under smoked filled skies,
And mud soaked ground.
Dancing flags blow to and fro,
While trumpet bursts overflow.

All around the tempo grows,
Back and forth in rhythmic flow
One last surge and then it's done...
Conquest at last,
The climax has come.

Who is the victor,
And who the vanquished?
... Conquest and surrender,
Such sweet, sweet anguish!
