Top place to party
Party Central is having a Party On The Lawn again this year in a community group lime that has become one of the enjoyable hallmarks for Crop-Over.
Event planner and Party Central leader Tamara Arthur, said it was still the only lime to be held at a private residence this season.
In its third year, Party On The Lawn had become increasingly popular, Arthur said, because patrons liked the fact that it felt like a house party and as such they were comfortable being there.
The now annual event is held every Sunday, with an array of eats and drinks, and entertainment to put patrons in the mood.
“We are known for our cocktails and corn soup. Trinidadians come here to make this soup,” said Arthur, adding that although the music was played by a DJ, they also sometimes had live performances by calypsonians.
She said they had featured artists including TC, Mikey and even the occasional entertainer from Trinidad, such as Dawg-E-Slaughter.
She added that Party Central usually catered to a large crowd because they were located on five acres of land and only persons 18 years and over were allowed to get into this lime.
Arthur said in the future they would like to have a music festival where people from as far as Africa and other places around the world could come together to perform.
She said it would be a place were different genres of music could be heard in one international festival.
In the meantime, the Crop-Over group will continue to host its Sunday limes in Husbands, St. James. (KAC)
