Vendors take over The City
THE CITY WAS full of fun and games yesterday when representatives of the Barbados Association of Retailers, Vendors and Entrepreneurs (BARVEN) paraded for their own Bridgetown Market Day.
The event was held to highlight the important street vendors have played in Barbados as the country prepares to celebrate its 50th anniversary of Independence on Wednesday.
Many danced along the route that started at the temporary market at Cheapside, through Broad Street and circling The City, ending at the starting point.
One of the highlights of the parade was the colourful mascot depicting a street vendor with a tray of fruits and vegetables. (TG)
