Pic-O-De-Crop finals postponed

The Pic-O-De-Crop finals has been postponed until tomorrow due to anticipated bad weather.

Minister of Culture Stephen Lashley told Barbados TODAY moments ago that the decision was taken on the advice of the Barbados Meteorological Services.

While the warning has been lifted we were told we would still have rain and there’s the possibility of thunderstorms, which does not lend itself to having outdoor competition this evening,” he said.

We are going to go for tomorrow because there isn’t expected to be as much of an impact in terms of the weather. The gymnasium would have been the back up in the event we could not have it outdoors but it does not appear that we would have extreme weather as we would have today,” the minister added.

The show takes place at the Kensington Oval at 7pm.

In a release issued this afternoon, the Ministry of Culture and the NCF announced that several other events have been postponed until tomorrow.

These are: the Emancipation Walk and Ceremony; the opening of Bridgetown Market and Roberts Eat Way.

The Foreday Morning Jam has not been affected.

    we now surmise that weather was used as a scapegoat and that the real intent is to separate the two events. a stroke of security genius. Take a bow all concerned and keep it that way next year and beyond because Foreday morning is not getting any smaller.
