NASSAU, BAHAMAS – After a two-year hiatus scores of residents making their way to Bay Street early Monday morning for The People’s Love and Unity Rush. It’s one of the most anticipated cultural events in the independence calendar of events.

The Junkanoo Development Association spearheading the parade, but our Jameelha Missick tells us that it was more than just music, costumes, and fanfare, as numerous deserving Junkanooers were honoured.

Sights and sounds marking the country’s 49th year of Independence, as Junkanoo music filled the streets of Downtown Nassau.

Those in attendance showing their excitement for the return of the Peoples Love and Unity Rush.

Resident Valerie Percentie, and Terrell Taylor, a Bahamian who lives abroad, saying after the long two year wait, there’s no greater feeling than being back on Bay.

Bahamians weren’t the only ones joining in on the fun. A Baltimore resident shares her love for The Bahamas.

Ahead of the parade, the Junkanoo Development Association, honoring a number of Junkanoo icons for their contributions to the art.

The only woman in the group, Krista Dean of the Shell Saxon Superstars,  says she is humbled.

Residents could be seen dancing and chanting in support of their favorite groups, like the Shell Saxon Superstars and the Valley Boys, who made their return to Bay.

And, while there may have been a preference for many, it was clear that the one thing they all had in common was love for the greatest expression of Bahamian culture – Junkanoo.
