EAST END/LONG LOOK, Tortola, VI- With the second Rise and Shine scheduled for Road Town cancelled on August 4, 2015, the action was all the rage at the East End Long Look Rise and Shine, which got underway at 4.30 this morning August 5, 2015 and had literally hundreds of revellers.

Psyched up by the earlier concert at the Yvette Penn Festival Village featuring Farmer Nappy, Nadia Batson, and Crazy out of Trinidad among others, the crowd was ready for the tramp.

In addition to those mentioned, there were the Stylee Band and Fireman out of St Vincent and the Grenadines.

They did a good job of working the crowd and getting them ready with their high energy performances.

On the truck, the Venomous Poison Band worked the mostly half-dressed and whitened revellers. During the procession, persons carried pails of white paint and hand printed persons on their head and on other parts of their body.

While the persons marched, there were no ends of water being sprayed, no ends of curry powder and other condiments converted for use in the traditional Jouvert, known otherwise as Rise and Shine tramp.

There have been no reported incidents from the East End/Long Look Rise and Shine, traditionally known to be a hotbed of troublesome activity.
