Some roads to be closed for Bacchanal Run

Colourful: the Bacchanal Run is held every Cup Match holiday (File photograph)

Some roads in Pembroke will be closed to traffic today when partygoers take to the streets to celebrate the Bacchanal Run.

The colourful Soca-driven event, which takes place every Cup Match holiday, sees revellers throwing powdered paints and water, at each other.

This year’s parade starts on Frog Lane at 7pm. The route will then progress to Palmetto Road, Marsh Folly Road, and Dutton Avenue, before concluding at Bernard Park Field. Festivities are expected to end by 9.30pm.

A spokesman for the Ministry of Public Works said traffic marshals will be on duty during the celebrations, and encouraged residents to follow guidelines.

He said: “Residents are asked to avoid driving along the parade route whilst participants are on route.

“Residents will be provided access as necessary, and give participants passage to move along the road closure routes.”

There will be no parking restrictions for the event and motorists are permitted to park in designated parking bays along any part of the route.

Police will be authorised to close off streets or portions of streets and authorise parking if necessary.

Further information can be obtained from Keidric Smith on 331 6008.
