Bridetown aglow for Independence

As part of our Independence celebrations, every year on November 1st Bridgetown and numerous roundabouts across the island are set aglow with blue and gold lights. I don't have any pics yet from last night's lighting ceremony, but I came across a collection of photos by Stephen Mendes entitled Beautiful Nights in Barbados which will give you an idea of what Bridgetown looks like lit up for Independence.
