Sea Spray Resort & Marina held its annual Junkanoo Competition on December 28. Two Junkanoo groups, the Stingers and the Rockers, made their way to Elbow Cay to delight the crowd. Tourists and locals alike crowded the street beside Sea Spray to get a look as each group rushed.
Sea Spray served a delicious buffet that evening prior to the rush. Burns House and Kalik were also on hand to provide drink specials to the thirsty patrons. In a very rare occurrence when talking about junkanoo, the first group began not only on time, but a few minutes early.
As the Stingers made their way to the beat of drums and horns, the crowd pushed in to get closer to the music. The best seats in the house belonged to those who purchased the VIP seating right next to the judges.
After the drum beat fell, the Stingers cleared the way and after a brief break the Spring City Rockers fired up the goat skin.
Though both groups equally entertained the crowd, the judges felt that the Rockers deserved first place.
