Christmas in Queen’s Park. It is as Bajan a Christmas tradition as black cake, jug-jug or sorrel.
Every year, hundreds of Barbadians flock to the park in Bridgetown, decked out in the sort of sartorial splendour not even seen at weddings or balls. Against a backdrop of Christmas tunes compliments the Royal Barbados Police Force Band, Promise and other performers, Barbadians stroll through the park, greeting friends they may not have seen in some time and stopping willingly to pose for anyone who asks. Our photographers were in the park yesterday and captured some of the scenes.
