(Eleuthera, Bahamas) – Crowds of Eleutherans as well as visitors to the island packed bleachers and stands along the main thoroughfare in Governor’s Harbour on Saturday evening, January 6th, 2018, during the 3rd Annual Eleuthera Junkanoo Festival Parade Competition, which featured five fantastic Junkanoo groups from across The Eleutheras.  The groups featured included, The Savannah Sound Lucayans, Harbour Island’s Barracks Hill Top Warriors,  Rock Sound’s New Vision, Tarpum Bay’s Unity Builders, and The Harbour Boys.

After an on time start at about 8pm, the first two groups presented strong first laps, beginning with Tarpum Bay, followed by Savannah Sound.  The colourful entertainment stalled for a time, while the third group from Harbour Island waited for some of their costumes, reportedly left behind, to catch up.  However, the crowds were not disappointed as Briland’s Warriors began their first lap, bursting onto the well-lit Junkanoo venue around 10pm, with vibrant colours, enthralling music and beautifully choreographed dancers.  The Harbour Boys and Rock Sound’s New Vision followed shortly after, also putting on a fabulous display of creativity and culture.  The spectacle continued on into the wee hours, with second laps closing out around 2am.
