D’Urban Park was packed to capacity for Mash. Myself and family settled at Stand 22. I expected the music, float and revellers to enter the park from the western end, and go around the block allowing the spectators to experience their final display. Instead, the trucks entered the park, turned off their music and quietly exited the eastern entrance with the revellers. This was a cold show for Mashramani. Everyone in the stand sucked their teeth. They didn’t even have extended speakers so the spectators on the eastern side could hear what was going on at the judges’ table. Whoever the organizers are, they must know that they have disappointed thousands who came out to be part of Mashramani 2018.
