The Crop Over celebration recalls our colonial past when sugar cane was king, and creativity abounds with indigenous art, craft, calypso, flower festivals, folk concerts and revelry at Foreday Morning. But it is Grand Kadooment - the climax of the festival - which generates the most heat, energy and colour! The event is great fun for everyone, even if you're watching the masqueraders from the sidelines and not "jumping" in a costumed band.
Revellers, among whom are countless international celebrities, including our very own mega star, Rihanna, make their way through the streets in a kaleidoscope of colour to the Spring Garden Highway, where the party continues well into the night with more revelry, music, food and fireworks, set against the picturesque backdrop of Brighton beach.
