The Headlines are abuzz with Cropover!

With Vincy and Lucian Mas behind us up next on the Calender is Crop Over and I know many people who will be flying out in the coming weeks for the fetes, boat rides and grand Kadooment parade which takes place on August 6th. Today's Trinidad Guardian features the upcoming celebrations:

WITH the final page on St Lucia carnival closed last Tuesday night with las’ lap revelry through the streets of capital Castries, all eyes are now focused on the Crop Over Festival in Barbados which is already in full swing.

In St Lucia, the big winners this year included calypso monarch Minnel and Panorama champion Leverage Management North Stars Steel Orchestra.

In Barbados, tents belting out the best in calypso have been in music-mania for weeks with old names such as Red Plastic Bag, PJ Pompey, Grynner, TC, John King, Gabby and Li’l Rick making the news.

Every night the tents are filled to capacity, the singers mashing up the crowd with tunes that certainly bring about the waving of hands and wining of hips.

Reports emanating out of Bimshire indicate that clubs along De Gap (St Lawrence) have been seeing record crowds on weekends.

Band-houses are selling out their skimpy costumes like money going out of style, with Power X 4 again leading the way in terms of registering another record-breaking number of masqueraders.

Even ICC Cricket world Cup is coming to the fore again with bands having sections immortalising the event.

Those who have spent most of the year walking briskly around The Garrison (horse racing track in Hastings near Bridgetown) and around the Sherbourne Centre getting trim and ready for Crop Over, have thrown caution to the wind scouring the food streets after partying the nights away.

With Barbados’ Grand Kadooment (Parade of Bands) scheduled for August 6, similar activity is in progress in Grenada for its festivities one week later.
