The Barbados Defence Force (BDF) will launch its 30th anniversary celebrations tomorrow, Saturday, February 28, with a Ceremonial March in the City.
It will commence at Pelican Village from 10:00 a.m. and will end at Independence Square. The event will be held under the theme “Barbados Defence Force: Pearl Anniversary – a 30-year Odyssey of Excellence”.
The march is based on the concept of a Freedom of the City March, (an honour bestowed on the Barbados Regiment). It will feature BDF detachments on a ceremonial parade through Bridgetown. A coordinated sail of vessels of the Barbados Coast Guard into the Careenage will occur simultaneously.
The Band of the BDF will also serenade persons in Bridgetown with a short concert in the amphitheatre in Independence Square.
