FROM THE QUEEN’S PARK starting point, about 20 Foreday bands waited to move off under a heavy police and Defence Force presence.
And by 12:3 0a.m. half of them had started their slow trek down to Harbour Road.
At the BTI carpark many revellers stood milling around waiting for their bands to come together.
Nine had moved up to the bridge in line, with bands such as Fashion Splendour, Road Warriors, Passion still waiting.
As usual, spectators picked up vantage points along the route to enjoy the spectacle which is expected to last until sunrise. (NS)
