The Festival That Displays What It Means To Be Bahamian


A male visitor from Pennsylvania, plucked randomly from the crowd to judge a pepper sauce competition at the weekend Tru Tru Bahamian Festival, got more than he bargained for which was more than the hot sauce experience. Prior to the pepper sauce tastings, he developed a case of the hiccups, and with no water anywhere to be found, and surrounded by a bunch of Bahamians he was advised to stick a piece of brown paper on his forehead.

With no brown paper bags in sight, he was encouraged to take a piece of his mate’s white paper bag, wet it thoroughly in his mouth and then stick it on his forehead. He was a little stunned and apprehensive at the advice, but he proved to be a trooper, and showed his spirit by doing it. Within seconds of pressing the piece of paper to his forehead he announced that his hiccups had surprisingly stopped, to which he was informed that he had just had a true-true Bahamian experience.
