Barbados Crop Over 2014


Barbados Crop Over 2014, Grand Kadooment day or Carnival day, as some call it, is the last day of the Crop Over festival which is held on the first Monday of August each year.

This Barbados festival is a spectacle of colour, costumes and dancin! The bands parade in front of the National Stadium and continue all through the streets as they make their way to the Spring Garden Highway. Each band follows large trucks which are decked out with speakers and some with performer’s blaring music so loud you can feel it in your soul; a grand end to a grand festival.

Are you in the mood to chip down the street from 8AM until? Here is a list of a few bands that you can “jump” with:
