Scores attend Christmas in the Park

Barbadians, dressed in their Sunday best, turned out in their numbers this morning for Christmas in the Park.

Looking their finest after Christmas church services, the ladies and gents fashionably strutted to the Christmas carols provided by the Royal Barbados Police Force, local gospel group Promise, Sheldon Hope, and others.

The large number of patrons at Queens Park reflected that Barbadians are still invested in the tradition.

David Adamson, an annual patron, told Barbados TODAY this tradition has been maintained by his family throughout the generations.

“We need to ensure that this tradition, which is uniquely Bajan, is more or less taken into the next generations because there is no other part of the world that you can come on Christmas morning …and enjoy such a variety of wardrobes and delight,” he said.

Adamson and his family paid tribute to the island’s 50th anniversary in their attire. (KK)

      Didn’t see your comment. I do hope you had a great day yesterday. I had some traditional Guyanese pepperpot and Garlic por. Hosted at 6:00 a.m. by a Portugese Guyanese.

    I wonder why some bajans say “Only in barbados” because a few ladies/gents turn up in the park dress in their Sunday`s best and wants to compare it with the rest of the world. Look at the thousands that will go to “Times Square” in freezing temperatures from all over the world just to see the Ball drop on Old year`s nite and many other activities.

    I love to see it. Why should we drop our traditions.

    @Jennifer. I think you may be perfectly correct. They all are wearing inexpensive sun shades, and all have walking sticks which I dare say look like canes. Do you think they are DLP parlimentarians in disguise? I was being facetious LOL
