The heritage events actually signalled the acceleration of Crop-Over 2013 into higher gear after a May start with Cavalcades. The first Heritage Walk occurred in the City on June 9, and the Heritage Lecture and Tour at St. Ann’s Fort fell on June 13. The latter was particularly well received as patrons got to tour the fort at Garrison, which recreated the old feel of the army headquarters and mess halls, all decked out in splendor for the occasion.
Both events were so well-received and filled with patrons wanting more that cultural leaders noted that they were already examining how to expand on the enthusiasm seen at Crop-Over further into the year. (LB)
