Alison Hinds Rocks the Crowd at the 9th Annual Atlanta Caribbean Jerk Festival

Panthersville Stadium was transformed into a mecca of Jamaican food, music and culture on Sunday, August 31, 2014 for the The 9th Annual Grace Atlanta Caribbean Jerk Festival and Family Fun Day.  The aroma of jerk cuisine, roast fish, curry, mannish water, roti, bake and salt fish, and various other succulent Caribbean culinary specialties filled the stadium air and tickled your senses.

And the winner is.... Juici Jerk!

Not only were patrons treated to various Caribbean delicacies, attendees also enjoyed a pulsating reggae, soca and hip hop concert with the likes of Chubb Rock, Alison HInds, Luciano and Freddie McGregor.  Unfortunately, due to traffic and travel issues the show got off to a late start.  The organizer of the event, Glenn Simmonds, apologized to attendees for this:

I would like to thank everyone for attending the Jerk Fest 2014. I would also like to apologize for the late appearance of the featured acts. The main acts were unable to get to the venue at their scheduled time because the roads leading to the venue were closed due to the the extremely heavy traffic. One performer for example tried for over 2 hours to access the event. Nonetheless, Chubb Rock, Alison Hinds, Luciano and Freddie McGregor all gave outstanding performances. Once again thanks for coming to the festival.
