Revellers preparing for the finale of the 2014 Crop Over season, Grand Kadooment, have been told to display decency on the road.

The advice comes from Minister of Culture Stephen Lashley, who warned that some types of behaviour won’t be accepted.

“Last year I saw a photograph of an adult gyrating on a minor and I want to say that is behaviour we cannot have in the Crop Over festival,” Lashley said firmly.

While encouraging persons to enjoy themselves on the road, the minister said this should be done in a manner that was not only respectful of the individual themselves, but to the significance of the emancipation as well.

“I want to encourage you that while you move to the rhythm of the bands, of the big trucks and the music, that you do that with a certain measure of respect and that we don’t have in the papers the next day those photographs that I don’t like to see, which shows behaviour that we should not be indulging in,” he said.

“I want to encourage Barbadians that as they enjoy the Kadooment festivities and all the other merriment associated with the rest of Crop Over that they do so with decency and that they do so within the context that this is all happening within the season of Emancipation. All of the principles that I have referred to must become etched in our minds as we demonstrate the African ancestry. The spirit of Mother Africa that is buried within must be respected in our motions, our actions as well as in our thoughts and our deeds,” minister Lashley added.
