All hands on deck
A BUZZ of last-minute activity surrounded masquerade band houses yesterday as the clock ticked down to Grand Kadooment.
Those who weren’t working on costumes were waiting in lines, making final payments or purchasing costumes. There were no idle hands and Laura Galt, bandleader of Lucky Horseshoe & Jump Barbados’ Save We, described the situation as hectic.
“These are the last-minute people. We have already sold a lot of costumes, yesterday and today. A girl called for five and a guy called for four, so we’re almost sold out,” Galt told the DAILY NATION early yesterday afternoon.
Also in busy mode was the band Ravurz – Movies In Crop Over, which was drawing people to the Olympus Cinema lobby throughout the day. Public relations officer Marlene Wilson said even though Ravurz had been distributing costumes since Wednesday, more people had been coming in after Saturday’s Foreday Morning Jam. (JH)
