Lee Sing’s latest edict: No DJs for J’Ouvert on the Avenue
Another restriction has been placed on revellers for this year’s J’Ouvert celebrations as bands with DJs and music trucks will not be allowed on Ariapita Avenue. Additionally for the five hours that encompasses J’Ouvert morning, the avenue would be renamed the Birdie Mannette Pan Avenue. Birdie Manette was a pan pioneer from Woodbrook who played during the early days of pan with Invaders. This is to accommodate a steel band parade and ‘bomb’ competition which will take place on the avenue and be judged at Adam Smith Square in Woodbrook. This was revealed by Port-of-Spain mayor Louis Lee Sing during a news conference yesterday at City Hall, Port-of-Spain. Lee Sing had already announced in a previous news conference that J’Ouvert masqueraders would not be allowed to parade through St Clair. Lee Sing told media at a news conference yesterday that the T&T Police service had advised that St Clair was off limits. “There is now a zero tolerance approach to defacing of property,” Lee Sing said.
