Pan and more at Pan Pun De Sand
There was more than plenty pan on Brandon Beach on Sunday to cap the three-day pan events put on by the National Cultural Foundation.
While there were only five bands performing at Massy Pan Pun De Sand, their offerings were enough to satisfy the crowd that had built steadily from 2 p.m.
Ladened with food baskets, umbrellas, coolers and chairs, it was a family affair for many who used the day to have a picnic. The beach was crowded with toddlers in strollers to children ranging from tots to teens.
The sweltering sun provided a brisk trade for a sno-cone vendor, along with food stalls that served refreshments and food.
While The Combermere School Steel Orchestra played on Stage B to the early gathering, Aceworx Community Steel Orchestra of about 20 players took to Stage A to kickstart the evening.
