George town is usually dead asleep by 830pm, for some this is a tragedy, for others it is an opportunity.
Events coordinator, Mathew Leslie decided to keep the community of George Town awake for three nights using nothing but a stage, a few DJ’s and a major sound system.
I am no expert, but throwing a massive street party may help get the ball of revitalization in George Town rolling.
“This event is going to definitely benefit revitalization of George Town, you have restaurants that have never , they’re normally not open this late , they’re still open right now, the reason being because we’re bringing a crowd here, so we’re revitalizing George Town, we’re making the town blossom, we know what to do, you know? And this is what is doing it.” said Mr. Leslie
Yesterday was the finale for Mardi Gras 20-16, the most entertainment George Town has experienced in the first quarter of this year, we will see if Batabano can match if not beat the turn out.
