Victory For Valley Boys

Tribune Staff Reporter

THE Valley Boys Junkanoo group was named the unofficial winner of the 2015 New Year’s Day Parade last night, rebounding from their disappointing fourth place finish in the 2014 Boxing Day Parade.

The One Family Junkanoo group took second place, the Roots Junkanoo Group third and fourth were The Shell Saxons Superstars, according to Douglas Hanna, chairman of the Junkanoo Parade Management Team.

The unofficial results came after Junkanoo officials controversially reduced the number of laps the major groups would make in a bid to shorten the parade.
