BARBADOS - Parish of St. James- festivals
Mr. Alfred Pragnell, a popular local commentator, was the originator of the Holetown Festival, he thought it was time for Barbadians to take note of their rich cultural history. With the help of friends the concept of the Holetown Festival developed.
The festival was opened in February 1977 by the then Senator Lionel Craig.
There is a choice to suit every taste from Chinese to Indian, African to American, Caribbean and European. Music is perfuse and the atmosphere electric as local dancers perform and stilt men strut about twelve foot tall!
Festival brimming with entertainment

Later tonight, Barbadians can look forward to a Grant
Floodlit Tattoo with The Royal Barbados Police Force band. However, tomorrow
will see the Banks Coca Cola Street Parade featuring vintage and classic
cars, a Taste of Kadooment with costumes by Gwyneth Squires, traditional
tuk band music with stilt walkers, as well as the Holetown Dooflicky and
a Festival Fashion Show at the Glitter Bay Hotel, among other activities.
Crystal Waterfront Carnival
was pure ecstasy for dozens on the West Coast yesterday morning, especially
for Welsh visitor Eric Smith, who could not help but dance to the rhythmic
gyrations of “Mother Sally” at the 88-room Crystal Cove Hotel.
It’s the seventh year for the special event, and according to new general manager Charles Maynard, the idea is to bring a “piece of Barbados to the guests and give them a feel for what we do here in terms of entertainment”.
