festival crop top

August 5, 2024

Today, people in Barbados celebrate Crop Over. This festival dates back to 1687 when it was customary to celebrate the end of the hard sugar cane harvests during slavery. The festival lasts a very long time and is punctuated by competitions, music and songs. Other traditions that have been added include climbing a greased pole, feasting, and drinking competitions. #mythology #myth #legend #calendar #5August #ropOver #barbados
