Historically, Crop Over was a time to celebrate the end of the sugar cane harvesting season. Now, Crop Over is the biggest celebration in the country which includes parades, calypso singing competition and parties, lots of parties. Kadooment day, is the day that everyone in the different "bands" wear their costumes and have a big party parade. Kadooment day also ends the crop over celebration which lasts about 2 months. If you all are familiar with carnival in Brazil, Crop over is a very similar concepts.
I had so much fun watching all of the bands parade down the street and seeing people have a good time. I actually want to participate in a band next year, so look out for that. The picture in this post, were taken on Kadooment day. As you will see the costumes are so beautiful. Hope you enjoy your peek into Bajan (Slang for Barbadian) culture.
