Let the festivities begin ......

Let the festivities begin as Barbados celebrates Crop Over, the island’s most popular festival, through Aug. 4. Crop Over, which dates back to the 1780’s when Barbados was one of the world’s foremost sugar producers, commemorates the end of the sugar cane season with a vibrant extravaganza of music and masquerade, heritage and culture. During the final three days of Crop Over, Spring Garden Highway is the heart of the festival. The entire stretch of road is converted to a bustling marketplace of arts and crafts, foods of all kinds, plus entertainment including steel bands, dance groups, folk performers, gospel singers and calypsonians. The grand finale, and a universally celebrated national holiday, known as Kadooment Day, takes place Aug. 4 with a colourful and lively parade of costumed dancers and fireworks.
