Barbados Comes Alive For Its 'Sweetest' Festival: Crop Over

Barbados Tourism Authority "Crop Over dates back to the 1780s when Barbados was one of the world's foremost sugar producers and has evolved to become a series of entertainment and heritage events. This year's theme is 'Celebrating we heritage' and aims to engage more people at the community level. Crop Over begins with the Super Six Cavalcades in May continues into the summer with Heritage Fairs highlighting artists and their crafts and culminates in August with big stage shows boasting pyrotechnics, flashing lights and booming sound systems.

Visitors from all over the Caribbean, North America and Europe will flock to Barbados to experience a lively showcase of the multi-faceted Barbadian culture, in addition to its pristine beaches, breathtaking sunsets, Zagat-rated cuisine and vibrant nightlife. 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, traditional foods, plus entertainment including steel bands, dance groups, folk performers, gospel singers and calypsonians."
