Sun blazes on parade
THE BURNING SUN took its toll on revellers and spectators yesterday during the Republic Bank Grand Kadooment.
Along Black Rock, spectators made use of all available shade while some hid under umbrellas as they endured the annual long wait times between the leading bands. Revellers took advantage of water stations along the route to get a quick hose down and keep cool as they made their way to Spring Garden.
After all, the temperature had reached 30 degrees Celsius at the airport yesterday.
Some revellers were unable to make it and were seen getting on board transportation provided for that eventuality while one young woman was seen fainting and another throwing up, although it is suspected alcohol also played a part in these cases. (CA)
