HAGUE, Trelawny — The inaugural staging of Eaton's Jerk Festival and Family Fun Day is set for the Hague Industrial Estate in Trelawny on Saturday, August 11.

The event features a strong line-up of artistes for the day and night event.

Organisers have listed on the entertainment roster Chi Ching Ching, who has been touring several countries recently, and is currently enjoying heavy rotation with his hit single Rope. Also to be featured is Montego Bay based-artiste Teejay, who is riding a wave of success after delivering at Reggae Sumfest and Great Fete Weekend in Trinidad and Tobago. Rounding out the main acts are Laden, Ricky Teetz, Avanzce, Lybron Rumboss, and teenage sensation Wayne J.

The festival will also feature food purveyors from popular eateries such as Father Bull, Jerk Island and Lindsay's Seafood, as well as a special booth from Eaton's with discounted prices on their products.

Other attractions include a Kiddie's Village, which will have face painting, go-carts and bounce-about, as well as added entertainment from the magician, the clown and elastic man.

Javier Charlton, a member of the organising committee, said the team is excited about the inaugural staging of the event hopes will be staged annually.

“We are working overtime to make this a success. As part of our promotional package, we are at Pier One every Wednesday leading up to the event. We have food competitions with Eaton's infused jerk offerings, and persons can win tickets and gift baskets courtesy of Eaton's,” Charlton explained.

ZJ Sparks and MC Blaze are down for hosting duties for the event that begins at 10:00 am, while the stage show will start at 8:00 pm.
