It was a family affair last Saturday at Brandons Beach, off the Spring Garden Highway in St Michael.
There were babies in their mothers’ and fathers’ arms and in strollers. There were elderly people with canes, and young women frolicking in swimsuits.
People used the Errol Barrow Day bank holiday to enjoy the first Big Beach Bash concert put on by the St Michael North-West Development Foundation, under the patronage of Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler.
By the end of the night close to about 10 000 people, including visitors and MPs had partied in the intermittent rain.
After the event, both Sinckler and Cranston Browne, coordinator of the project, expressed pleasure at the turnout and the fact that it was incident-free.
