Barbadians and tourists alike are being urged to come out and support the Ministry of Tourism’s second series of Bajan Pride Expositions, scheduled to start this month.
The first exposition in this series will come off on Saturday, September 25 at the Desmond Haynes Sports Complex, Holder’s Hill, St. James, from 10:00 a.m. until 5:30 p.m.?? It will showcase the art and craft of individuals in and around the area of St. James.
A key purpose of the Ministry’s expositions is to provide a forum for artists and craft persons to display and sell their produce to both visitors and locals. These will include, among others, jewellery, basketry, woodcraft, leather, and paintings. In addition, there will be varied entertainment for the whole family and visitors are encouraged to visit the craft demonstrations and see how some local craft is made.
It will also feature touches of Barbadian culture such as the coconut and sno-cone vendors, the nut-seller and local confectionery.
Minister of Tourism, Richard Sealy will attend the firstname.lastname@example.org
