Crop Over Grand Kadooment Day in Barbados, is a bank holiday and is considered the grand finale of the Crop Over Festival where Barbadians celebrate the end of the sugar cane harvest and is usually held on the first Monday of August.
The revelers are divided into groups called ‘bands’ that each depicts different themes; all with vibrant, colorful costumes and music.
The bands start at the National Stadium where they are judged and then the jump-up of much merriment and dancing continues through the streets to calypso music, ending on Spring Garden Highway.
Locals and visitors alike flock to join in this national celebration.
