THE SWEETEST SUMMER FESTIVAL is ending on a sour note for some of the estimated 11 000 revellers expected to hit the streets in 31 bands today for Grand Kadooment.

Up to late yesterday evening band houses were a hive of activity, but not everyone was collecting or having a Sunday evening lime.

Some would-be revellers were waiting for their costumes to be completed, while others were not even sure if they would get their costumes in time for today’s big jump-up.

A complaint sent via social media to the NATION was very critical of one of the newer bands on the scene.

The woman, who lives overseas and paid online for her costume, said she encountered some issues with communication from the start, but she “prayed and travelled to this country with good faith”. (YB)
