Pool Party for Pan – New $700 attraction for weekend’s ‘Savannah Party’

Patrons are paying as much as $700 to be a part of the “Pan Splash” posse, which is a new feature added to The Greens for this weekend’s Panorama semi-finals at the Queen’s Park Savannah in Port of Spain. According to Pan Trinbago vice-president Byron Serrette, “This is an experiment with a ‘pool posse’, the perimeter of the pool will be 70 feet (21 metres) and four feet (1.2 metres) deep. We are just trying new things. All the necessary safety measures are in place, lifeguards, the works. This will be in an enclosed area and there will also be the PHI band.

The Panorama semi-finals, which is also known as the “Savannah Party”, is expected to draw thousands of patrons over a two-day period. Saturday will see the single-pan and small bands, and on Sunday, the medium and large bands. At the North Stand, President An­­thony Carmona will have his space, just as George Maxwell Richards before him, but word is the President is interested in The Greens and would use the North Stand as a base.  Serrette said that this year, security would be at a maximum in The Greens. Each gate will be manned, including the emergency exit. The Greens has been expanded to 304,000 square feet, moving further north and east onto the paved area of the North Stand. This paved section will be used for service access

Pan Trinbago is expecting 50-plus posses and several merchandising booths. Toyota will have a car on display, Coca-Cola and Blue Waters have the mist towers and Digicel has two branded tents. Serrette assured the action in The Greens will not hamper Panorama. In addition to making sure security keeps the noise down while a band is on stage, four stacks of speak­ers have been added in the middle that would feed the music from on stage.
