Jamaica 50

Jamaica 50Jamaica 50, This year Jamaica celebrates its 50th anniversary of independence from Britain. On Saturday, the golden anniversary year was ushered in with a kaleidoscope of sights, sounds and aroma. It was packaged as Fireworks on the Waterfront.

This annual New Year’s Eve event, organised by the Urban Development Corporation and used as a launch by the Jamaica 50 secretariat, saw spectacular fireworks and a very entertaining concert sprinkled with a wide choice of food.

The venue of the celebration, a large section of Ocean Boulevard, downtown Kingston, was defined by a nicely decorated and well-elevated stage at one end and some neatly arranged tents accompanied by a variety of rides for children at the opposite end.

But it was the stage that commandeered the greatest attention. It became the catalyst for Jamaican musicians of varying ages and experience who entertained a huge crowd.

Among the talented musicians to employ the stage were Gee Whiz, I-Octane, Khago, Omari, Coo Coo Do, George Nooks, Joan Flemings and Ken Boothe.
