SOCIAL SCENE: Three cheers for the red, white and blue
Americans in Barbados celebrated July 4 with a grand tailgate party at the Embassy’s Wildey headquarters, on the eve of their country’s 237th independence anniversary.
Like the hundreds invited to the party, United States Ambassador Larry Palmer and his wife were decked out in their sporting emblazoned tees, typical dress for the traditional American party. The tailgate party is an open-air affair, with stocked food stations of ribs, fried chicken, boiled corn, and lots of other fare.
Amidst fireworks, Ambassador Palmer cut the large birthday cake carted in by four members of the United States Marine Corps.
There was dancing and singing with Palmer shaking a leg and even joining the band on stage at one time to belt out a tune.
