Crop Over was originally a celebration of the successful completion of the sugar harvest. Today, for almost two months each summer, the capital, Bridgetown, pulsates with the rhythm of calypso, folk music, and dance.
On the spectacular East Coast Road, sweaty calypso practitioners compete with rival groups against a backdrop of crashing Atlantic surf, while spectators gather on the surrounding hillsides with picnics, beer, and rum. The festival culminates with the Grand Kadooment, a joyful street carnival parade flaunting magnificent costumes and energetic dances.
Crop Over is a traditional harvest festival which began in Barbados, having had its early beginnings on the sugar cane plantations during slavery. Wikipedia
