Tradition lives on

For some Barbadians, Christmas Day does not start right unless they go to Queen’s Park.

For those who headed to the historic venue after attended the 5 o’clock services at various churches, it was the place to meet friends, renew acquaintances and enjoy the atmosphere.

People were treated to performances from gospel band, Promise and the Royal Barbados Police Force Band which accompanied the 2011 winner of the Richard Stoute Teen Talent Everdeene Smart, as well as contestants including David Howard as they mingled and walked the promenade.

The intermittent showers did not stop the parade of fashions with boys and men looking dapper and girls and women showing off their finery.

They were all joined by a tuk band and the Barbados Landship as well as Santa Clauses, and a couple in a horse draw carriage. (DS)
