MONTEGO BAY, St James — Partygoers in Montego Bay are expected to turn out in their numbers for one of the city's most anticipated event, 'Tightlines, Marlin Boat Raft-Up and Beach Party' which forms part of the annual Montego Bay Yacht Club International Marlin Tournament.

The event is set for Saturday, October 6, at the famous Doctor's Cave Beach in the resort city.

This is the fifth staging and judging by the excitement and positive feedback from past engagements, coupled with improvements by the organisers, patrons can anticipate a lot more.

The organisers have made tweaks to the format and are hoping that these changes will go over well with patrons.

These include moving to a completely all-inclusive concept, big ticket items in production with the use of more screens, addition of more DJs to the line-up, cabana outlay and more food options.

“We have billed ourselves as the most premium event in Montego Bay and our goal is to maintain that image, and we are continuously improving with that in mind. We are excited about the improvements that will be done this year,” said Andre Brown, a member of the organising committee, adding, “The focal point will be the stage and we are investing heavily in that.”

Arguably, the most exciting feature will be the outlay of cabanas that will extend 60 ft into the sea, each cabana will be outfitted with seats, full service staff, bottle service and a canoe just to inject some added fun.

Brown told th e Jamaica Observer West that organisers are also pleased with the sponsorship from Caribbean Producers Jamaica Limited (CPJ).

“We will have their (CPJ) full array of beverages, as well as sponsorship from Rainforest Seafoods and Best Dressed Chicken,” Brown noted.

“This year we are raising the bar, with better food options, production and drink options. When patrons come in, we want them to be impressed.”

The DJ line-up has depth and experience and features DJs Blu, Jigga, Kamal Bankay, Crazy Neil and DJ Scott. Entertainment options also include Sea Jammin with their 'Jettabators' and persons are encouraged to bring their floats.

Tickets for the event are available online at Billodex.com for $4,500, pre-sold, while tickets for $5,500 are available at outlets, including Fontana Pharmacy (islandwide), CPJ Market, Pier One, Ribbiz Ultra Lounge and TK Raffine. Tickets at gate will cost $7,000 for the event, which is scheduled to run from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm.
