EAST END/LONG LOOK, Tortola, VI – The streets of East End, Tortola, could not contain the mammoth crowd that turned out this morning August 6, 2014 for the annual street jam and fete, this time around for the 60th celebration of Festival in the Territory.

According to reports the East End/Long Look communities are said to have the record of hosting the largest Rise and Shine tramps for the Territory but according to bystanders and revelers this year they broke their own record.

The tramp got started immediately following the stoppage of the international show which marked the opening of the Ifield ‘Spike’ Lettsome Memorial Festival at approximately 4:00am August 6, 2014.

While those dressed in the fancies were seeking bathrooms, their vehicles and even neighbouring homes to change into their tramping attire there were hundreds already on the outside of the Festival ground all dress and saddled up to hit the street.

Starting off sometime before 5:00am they pranced through the streets with one truck carrying the band for the tramp, Stylee Band. This was the one thing that many said they regretted as they thought that because the tramp has been growing yearly at least one other music truck was necessary. But that was not a deterrent.

The tramp came to an end shortly after 9:00am.

    It was a nice turnout but i know our local bands would have done a better job. EE committee should consider 2 bands for this massive turnout annually rain or shine.

        Being in a "tramp" makes you a real man? You are having fun, but does it make you a "Man"? Calling out the non-real men/women: Members for the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 9th and the At-Large too. None of them were in the "tramp". You all need to stop.
