Speightstown comes alive
Hundreds of Barbadians flocked to Speightstown, St Peter today to take in some of the action of the Speightstown Alive event.
From as early as 10 a.m., people descended in Speightstown to take part in the activities provided during the day-long event.
Locals and tourists alike took in the road tennis and the tuk bands with “Mother Sallies,” while others paid particular interest to the produce and local crafts which were on display.
Later in the afternoon, the hot sun gave way to some afternoon showers, sending patrons scampering for shelter.
However, as the rains subsided, the numbers grew, with several more activities slated for the evening and night session.
