THE BARBADOS TOURISM PRODUCT AUTHORITY (BTPA) is working to awaken Speightstown.

It launched the pilot project Sizzlin’ Speightstown at the Speightstown Esplanade last Saturday, where many Barbadians came out to support and take in the activities.

In welcoming remarks, chief executive officer (CEO) of the BTPA, Dr Kerry Hall, said the authority saw the potential in Speightstown and wanted to offer both locals and tourists a truly Barbadian experience.
