THE Heroes’ Weekend party scene kicked off with the fifth staging of Hennessy Pure White in Ocho Rios, St Ann, last Friday. It was the primary staging of the event since 2020.
The elite affair, first held in St Mary, was held on the Ocean Village, Ocho Rios, St Ann.
“After the entire COVID, we actually went back to the drafting board and decided that we will not stick with just St Mary anymore. We wanted to supply a complete new experience. So, we brought it to ‘Ochi’ to draw a much bigger audience that might gravitate towards the event and thus far, so good,” said Hennessy Pure White promoter Phillip McKenzie.
The gang saw an interesting mixture of international patrons and locals who got here out to have a grand time.
“I flew in from New York to experience the Heroes’ Weekend celebration in Jamaica and I’m loving the vibe at Hennessy Pure White… cannot wait for Frenchmen tomorrow,” Pat Lewis, who’s of Jamaican heritage, disclosed.
While some partygoers got here for the fun, others got here for the style, in true all-white style. Guests got here out rocking white pants suits, skirt sets, dresses, and statement tops with flashiest embellishments.
One patron, Shanneila Stone, was confident in her look and credited a preferred local designer for her look.
“It’s an all-white event so I needed to get the trendiest outfit. My outfit is from the massive, bad designer Brand Marco,” she explained.
In accordance with one other member of the Hennessy Pure White team, they faced many obstacles along the best way, but realigned every time and made things work.
“I just wish to say an enormous thanks to all sponsors on behalf of my team [because] there isn’t any I in team and there have been quite a lot of sleepless nights, phone calls and messages and I can not even begin to let you know how much we put into this. We put our plans and plans failed, but we went back to the drafting board to wheel and are available again,” said Lamar Sutherland.
Hennessy Pure White boasted a line-up of local and international DJs who kept patrons dancing, rocking, and singing away to their favourite hit songs all night.
Among the many DJs who provided the musical delights on the event were DJ Ashile, DJ Kidd and Entourage, DJ DMX and Kaz, and DJ Niney Badness.
