Queen’s Park the hot spot
NOT EVEN the pouring Christmas Eve rains could wreck the tradition of “Christmas morning in the park” as hundreds descended on Queen’s Park yesterday for the traditional festivities there, following a night-time torrential downpour.
The crowd assembled was sparse when the Royal Barbados Police Force Band struck up promptly at 7 a.m. under the baton of the new acting director, Superintendent Keith Ellis.
With rows of chairs set up along the full length of the two main pathways leading to the bandstand, early “park-goers” secured the best seats around the bandstand to enjoy the programme of music.
Under overcast skies, most people sat and applauded, with just a few standing around.
