Motorists immediately began spending more for diesel yesterday.
Smokers, drinkers and online purchasers will also be doing likewise—paying more—from October 20.
T&T’s Carnival 2016 may be in full gear, however, amidst the plethora of all-inclusive fetes, cooler events and major concert shows planned for the soca capital of Port-of-Spain, a new favourite on the Carnival calendar—Evolve—recently encouraged several feters to journey to the Central borough of Chaguanas for a round of premium partying.
For its 2016 edition, the grounds of Presentation College, Chaguanas, were abuzz with the spirit of true festivity as the masses came out in fine fashion to party with past pupils and esteemed alumni of this prestigious educational institution. Evolve attracted some of the country’s most enthusiastic soca music fans which included several media personalities, renowned socialites and prominent businessmen.
One Evolve attendee was asked about her party experience highlights. She made it clear that the ambience and amenities at the Presentation College all-inclusive event were second to none. There was no shortage of exquisite food and premium drink at the event and the bars boasted a variety of premium drinks and spirits as well as shots, exotic mojitos and cocktails, while the food booths provided an assortment of local and multicultural delicacies which catered to the eclectic tastes of its loyal audience.
The food selections ranged from curry, roasted pork, beef sliders and pepper roti, to creole dishes, sandwich stations, corn soup, doubles and scrumptious dessert offerings.
For several attendees this year’s entertainment line-up also brought lasting memories with performances from vibrant and talented performers 5 Star Akil, Sekon Sta, Jaiga and College Boy Jesse who moved the massive audience with their catalogues of Carnival hits.
Much to the delight of both the younger and mature feters, Chutney Soca Monarch Ravi B brought a lively, pulsating vibe with his many crossover classics.
In addition to the food, drink, excellent party and socialising atmosphere, perhaps the most unforgettable moment was the hyped-up crowd singing in unison to the songs of artiste Kerwin Du Bois who rocked the audience with favourites such as Circles, Monster Winer and Too Real. The well-dressed audience held nothing back when Du Bois brought onstage soca diva Patrice Roberts to perform their 2016 smash Unforgettable.
It is indeed evident that Evolve 2016 was not only successful but will also remain a Carnival fixture for many seasons to come. The Presentation College Alumni will definitely ride this positive momentum going into all of their other upcoming efforts as patrons eagerly anticipate next year’s Carnival extravaganza.
