Crop Over Opening Gala 2003

Bigger and Better 2003 BNB Crop Over Opening Gala

Article Posted: Jul 03, 2003
For patrons attending the 2003, Barbados National Bank Crop Over Opening Gala, hold onto your hats because it promises to be bigger and better than in previous years. That’s the official word coming from Coordinator of the July 14th event, NCF Festival and Event planner, Karen Pestaina.
Speaking after a recent site visit to the picturesque Queen Park Grounds, she noted that this year, special tribute would be paid to one of the island’s oldest cultural institutions, the Barbados Landship Association, which is celebrating its 140th anniversary. To this end, floats portraying the heraldry of the previously known ships will be incorporated into this year’s parade.

This year’s opening gala will see the Queen’s Park Bandstand becoming a focal point for a number of cultural demonstrations including stick-licking and pottery.

Says the Festival and Event Planner: “We are celebrating 30 years of Crop Over and we must be able to pass on to the younger people, we know a lot of things are coming into culture, we must still see some kind of coming together of the old and the .” Ms. Pestaina further opines, “This is why Bajan Culture Village still is very important to our history as a people, and should be passed onto the younger generation so as to give them an idea of Crop Over of old.”

This year’s gala will first start with a processional march from the General Post Office on Cheapside to Queen’s Park, following which there will be the ceremonial delivery and blessing of the canes by Archbishop, Granville Williams of the Spiritual Baptist Church and also a packed entertainment package featuring the 2002 Party and Road March Monarch, Lil’ Rick, 2002 Calypso Monarch Red Plastic Bag, Gabby and Alison Hinds, amongst others.
