Hurrah for last canes
THE POMP AND PAGEANTRY normally associated with the ceremonial delivery of the last canes was sorely missing this year.
With just over 12 groups, which were mostly Crop Over bands and a few schools, the First Citizens Crop Over City Fest & Ceremonial Delivery Of The Last Canes was so low-keyed that the most exciting part of the festivities was the Changing Of The Guard in front of Parliament Building.
The bystanders who watched the parade move off from outside the Cheapside Post Office and lined the sidewalks all the way up to Parliament Building outnumbered the parade participants.
The King and Queen of the Crop, Grantley Hurley and Judy Cumberbatch, rode in the cars designated for the Sweet Soca and Party Monarchs. (NS)
