Update St. Thomas Carnival 2015

Figured I'd share a day to day review of my take on the 2015 St. Thomas Carnival! So lets jump on in....
Wednesday, I took the day off to enjoy the "Food Fair" and the "From then 'til Now" art show. The "Food Fair" was nice, seen a lot of familiar faces. We got there a little too late because lots of the dishes were already sold out! Next year I'll be sure to get out there early and I may even even bring an umbrella to shade me from the sun... because boy oh boy was it HOTT that day! The "From the 'til Now" art show was nice, I didn't snap many photos but I did post this photo to my Instagram.

Thursday, I actually got up early and made it down to the waterfront in time to catch a 'lil bit of Jouvert before work! Talk about "Wake up to wuk up" <---- GOSH this song was stuck in my head all day! Big Ups SDotFilms on this video and Spectrum Band!
Welp! Beenie Man was a NO SHOW! Not gonna lie, I was pretty bummedddd!
This is what he posted on Instagram the day of the show!
Check out @neck24_7 comment *chuckle*
Although I was bummed, the news wasn't shocking lol. Sadly I was not surprised HAH!
I decided that I wasn't going to let that ruin my night, I still went out and spent the night on the town' with my cousins. We enjoyed Pressure and Triple K's performances. I've seen Pressure perform a couple of times now, yet every time I hear "Love and Affection" I can't help but sing a long. That is a beautiful song.
I opted to watch the Adults Parade at home because I was still pretty tired from the night before...plus I had a couple deadlines to meet, so I decided it was best to stay home. Good thing Esonica was hosting the parade for WTJX Channel 12, she kept it quite entertaining (GO SONIC!) 
That night there was a firework show, Jared took a time-lapse of the fireworks. Check out his video!

We were hoping for a better show, but HEY! we are forever grateful. I'd rather some fireworks than no fireworks!
Later that night we went over to a friends house to watch thee Mayweather vs Pacquiao boxing match. I was the only girl there.... it kinda felt like a I crashed a party lol (sorry guyssss).
The match was pretty dull to say the least....#TEAMPACMAN.
"Last Lap" on Magens Bay! I spent the day tanning, relaxing, eating fried yellowtail, drinking champagne AND rum, eating johnny cakes and laughing with family and friends.

This years carnival was enjoyable there was very little violence in the community, so things ran smoothly...well besides after Jouvert when two girl got into a altercation which ended with one girl stabbed. But that did stop the Fete, I enjoyed myself... and as my pops likes to say "Building Community is important"
