Grand Kadooment in full swing
It started slowly, but the pace for Kadooment Day is picking up.
Thousands of revelers have hit the streets in searing 35 degree Celsius temperatures today, chipping their way down to Spring Garden Highway for the culmination of this year’s Crop Over Festival.
Bands are still making their way off the track of the National Stadium where Grand Kadooment started, but the streets surrounding today’s route are already packed with Barbadians, taking in the atmosphere on the final day of the island’s premier festival.
Along Black Rock, St Michael the first bands have started to eke their way to Spring Garden.
Early morning showers barely teased the sun-shy party-goers, and never amounted to a shower to cool them down on the road, forcing the band members and those watching on the streets to seek any area of shade that could be found. (BA)
