Caribbean culture was on full display during the line-up of exciting events at the Hookie Weekend in the United States. The Hookie Life Entertainment team once again delivered another successful execution of its beloved, annual summertime staple Juneteenth Weekend.
This event attracted thousands of festival lovers to the Washington DC metropolitan region for full a weekend of unmatched revelry. With 6 major events over the span of 5 days, the 2022 edition created memorable moments for its patrons complete with the very best of authentic West Indian entertainment.
Following the epic Thursday night kick-off event “Release Therapy” at the Ivy City Smokehouse which featured a dynamic performance by US Virgin Islands Soca star Adam O, attendees from various US and Canadian cities and Caribbean islands converged at the venue, Gateway DC for the Hookie Weekend Friday afternoon fixture known as “Hookie DC”.
For this event which is regarded as the ultimate premium Caribbean pool party, the organising team transformed Gateway DC into “vibes central” with a relaxing pool, VIP cabanas, a variety of games to go along with the “Arcade” theme and several cross-cultural food stalls and bars which were strategically located around the venue.
Hookie Weekend left fans wanting more
Adding to Hookie DC’s allure were energetic sets by top international DJs and performances from T&T’s Kes The Band and Voice, Grenada’s Mr Killa and Jamaica’s Kranium. Lion’s Pride J’ouvert gave attendees the chance to embrace uninhibited freedom with paint and powder.
Small, compact, and powerful pepper spray for women and designed to fit discreetly in a purse, makeup bag, backpack, or coat pocket. This pink lipstick pepper spray is a practical and the preferred way for many to carry their personal protection.
The signature Saturday morning Hookie weekend J’ouvert event was well patronised and left fans wanting more. This event was followed later that evening by Shine DC (a collaborative effort between Hookie Life Entertainment and Back to Basics Entertainment).
Sunday afternoon’s Riddim & Road was Hookie Weekend’s penultimate event which saw several masqueraders, multiple music trucks, drinks trucks and even live drummers hit the road at the Rosecroft Raceway for a creative Carnival-costumed celebration.
During this event, patrons got extra mileage from their previous regional and international Carnival costumes as well as their Monday wear and original costume creations.
