On the eastern section of the judging point, at the corner of Richmond and Park streets, police officers were directing vehicles away from the judging point.

Bliss portraying Dolce Vita followed and their masqueraders enveloped that judging point. Ronnie and Caro portraying the Checkered board, with Yuma also paraded before the judges.
Traditional mas was not left out as minstrels dressed in red, white and black took the stage.
