Cricketing icon Reverend Wes Hall yesterday evening set The City aglow in ultramarine and golden yellow with a flick of the switch, ushering in Barbados’ 45th Independence Celebrations. Simultaneously, Hall triggered a brief display of fireworks that lit up the night skyline of the Parliament Buildings and the nearby Treasury. The lighting ceremony, the 15th of its kind, saw hundreds of patrons, most dressed in national colours, treated to performances from the likes of the 100-voice St Leonard’s Boys’ Choir and gospel artist Paula Hinds, and a Bajan Folk Brew, featuring Adrian Green, Tamara Marshall, Mr Dale, Red Plastic Bag, Pic-O-De-Crop Monarch Popsicle, and others. Here, Minister of Culture Stephen Lashley and Hall discussing aspects of The City illumination. (YB)
