The festival, which dates back to the 1780s when Barbados was one of the world's foremost sugar producers, commemorates the end of the sugar cane season with an exciting and vibrant extravaganza of music and masquerade, heritage and culture. The grand finale, and a universally celebrated national holiday, known as Kadooment Day,occurs Monday, August 4 with a colourful and lively parade of costumed dancers and fireworks."
