OPENING CEREMONY

Barbadians and visitors are being encouraged to come out to the CARIFESTA XIII Parade of Countries, which will now take place on Sunday, August 20, beginning at Queen’s Park, at 3:30 p.m.

The parade will give members of the public the opportunity to see the participating delegations in their countries’ various masquerade costumes, as they move through the streets of Bridgetown towards Kensington Oval, where they will join spectators for the official opening ceremony at 5:30 p.m.

Everyone is encouraged to line the route of the parade, which will leave Queen’s Park from Nelson’s Gate at 3:30 p.m.; travel along St. Michael’s Row to the Marhill Street junction; and on to National Heroes Square, opposite the Parliament Buildings. The parade will then proceed along Broad Street towards Jubilee Gardens; pass in front of the Old Town Hall Building; travel along Cheapside and Fontabelle; and enter Kensington Oval via the Hanschell Inniss Gate.
