ACTIVITIES FOR Emancipation Day yesterday – including the MQI/Banks/LIME Pic-O-De-Crop finals – were held captive by anticipated bad weather.
The island’s premier calypso competition was moved from last night at seven o’clock to tonight at the same time at the Kensington Oval a change that was confirmed by Minister of Culture Stephen Lashley via a Press release from the Barbados Government Information Service. The Emancipation ceremony and opening of Bridgetown Market were also moved until today, while the Roberts/BL&P Foreday Morning hit the road as planned.
The shifting of the calypso show was the result of a warning concerning Tropical Storm Bertha which was discontinued on Friday morning, but heavy rain and gusty winds still forecast. Today’s weather is expected to be partly cloudy to cloudy with scattered showers and possible isolated thunderstorms.
Some of the finalists for tonight’s competition had no problems with the change, and said it gave them an extra day to rest and prepare.
