Pushing two years of uncertainty behind them, Jamaicans literally quenched their thirst for fun and rum last Saturday at the fourth staging of the Jamaica Rum Festival at The Aqueduct, Rose Hall, Montego Bay. As early as 11 a.m. the rum gates leading into the former Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival venue opened up, pouring spirits of all ages, legs and distinctions into the psyche of a people hungry for action. As sweltering as the sun was, it could not compete with the hot fashionistas who raided their closet for their best lifestyle wear in tribute to the day. Donning long, easy-flowing dresses or short and sweet ensembles, it was a feast watching the styles that etched their way into the fabric of the event. Making its first entry into the tourism capital, the festival organisers should easily declare it has found its new home, as The Aqueduct is the ideal venue for what is hoped will become an official June event.
