The Side Parties That Rocked At The Blankets And Wine

Some hugged; other kissed passionately while others danced erotically need i mention the rub a dub that has become a common occurrence at the Blankets and Wine? Well all was on full display over the weekend at the 13th edition. But wait a minute something else caught our attention; the parties that were happening at the sides or rather behind the scenes.

It was mostly the Cooperate companies and sponsors who had assembled beautiful tents for their stuff members and clients where a lot of partying was going on. From Bars to banks and institutions to ordinary vendors, they competed to have the most colourful tents with the most beautiful people occupying them.


While the main activities happened at center of the ground, there were other parties going on

Main sponsors Tusker Malt Lager dominated the whole place with their brand visible all over the place especially the mini-bars they had erected around the ground. Multichoice and DSTV brought in large screens to showcase sports action from Formula 1 to the Euro 2016 finals which happened at the end of the live performances, Zone 7 had 2 huge tents where the bars were lively all through.

There was another large tent for Stanbic Bank where guests sat quietly enjoying meals and drinks. Another large one belonged to co-sponsors Media World and Silk Events. NTV hosted their staff and viewers as well as House of DJs the main organisers who were also present at the scene.

But one very eye catching spot was that of Uganda Entertainment Awards who had a small but lively tent just next to the main stage. Jackson Pemba the main patron of the group was around with his entourage and looked pretty jolly as he posed for photographs with hot belles. A host of other ‘big names’ and celebrities were also seen enjoying drinks and bites from comedian Salvador and his Expendables to Socialites like Judith heard and Sheila Gashumba.

They made the loudest noise and cheered the performances through out till late. Drinks were flowing as the revellers enjoyed free cocktails. Kabs Aloha the man behind the awards was scene basking with pride as he mixed and mingled with the girls who kept giggling in approval.
