Eight of the 11 registered teams marched up from the Victoria Park, accompanied by music from the Royal St Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force Band.

Combined Banks copped the best banner award and for the third successive year, Central Water and Sewerage Authority carried off the best-dressed team title.
