Happy 41st Independence Barbados
On behalf of the Cheese-on-bread family, I would like to extend best wishes to all Barbadians at home and abroad as we celebrate another milestone in our development.
Today we're especially thankful for having been spared the worse of yesterday's earth tremor and for making it through another hurricane season unscathed. To God be the glory.
To all those persons, Bajan and otherwise, who have contributed to our development, we salute you.
Just to give you a snapshot of how Bajans celebrate their Independence Day; the Independence Parade at the Garrison Savannah began at 8:00 a.m., and all the armed and unarmed units will put on quite a spectacular show there before marching down Bay Street to Government Headquarters, where the Prime Minister will be saluted.
All day long communities will be having sports and other fun activities and of course plenty of conkies, fish cakes and other delicacies will be consumed. In the east, the annual St. Philip Carnival will be taking place (from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.)
Again, Happy Independence all, and stay safe!
