Independence Parade showcases Barbadian culture

Other uniformed groups such as the Barbados Cadets, Girl Guides, Barbados Landship, The Barbados Fire Service and others quickly followed suite after the other armed forces, and were decked out beautifully in their uniforms as they made their way past the scores of onlookers

Joining the parade this year, was a special contingent from the Barbados 2020 committee, as they decided to include a specially made float to help mark the upcoming big celebrations slated to start in January 2020

This occasion was also a unique experience for visitors as the island, as many of them also made their way down to the city in order to not miss this photography opportunity, with many of the locals who were decked out beautifully in the island’s national colours

Independence Parade showcases Barbadian culture Sun, 12/01/2019 – 2:13am By:  Shamar Blunt A kaleidoscope of colour and sound descended upon the city of Bridgetown yesterday, as the nation celebrated 53 years of independence with a parade through the heart of the city

At the end of a ceremony in Kensington Oval to mark the special occasion, detachments from the armed and unarmed forces, as well as representatives from other organisations from around the island, took to the streets, as they made their way down to parliament building where the Prime Minister, Mia Amor Mottley took the salute

Earlier on in the day, showers had threatened to impede the initial start of the procession, however dark clouds quickly gave way to blistering sunlight just moments before the parade made its way outside of the Oval

It was just after 10:30 a.m., when the Barbados Defence Force Band made out of the Oval, leading the various other groups down to Heroes’ Square and past the hundreds of Barbadians and visitors who had lined the streets from earlier in the morning.
