Wet, wet Kadooment
It was a wet, wet Kadooment here in Bim today, but no rain could stop this jam as thousands of revellers took to the streets.
Over 20 bands wined and "jonesed" their way from Warrens to Spring Garden, and even Bajan superstar Rihanna made it out in the showers to play 'mas.
Congrats to Edwin Yearwood, whose Cova de Road emerged the winner in the Road March Competition, and to Rupee and Mr. Dale, whose hits I Am a Bajan and Wow respectively tied for second place.
And, earlier I forgot to congratulate Pic-O-de-Crop winner David "Popsicle" Hall, the first timer who beat out about four former monarchs to cop the title. He gave a fantastic performance on Friday night.
Anywho, I have some more photos of today's revelry on the road to share with you, and then, next stop, Rihanna's Loud concert on Friday! It's gonna be a fun week, peoples.
