RANTS AND RAVES: Crop Over not exclusive

by Carol Martindale

Yes folks, I am ranting and raving again this week about the parties going on for the Crop Over season.

The festival is in full swing, now shifting into another gear with a crush of fetes that will be held this week.

There will be the expected mix of parties including those that are all-inclusive in nature.

While their concept is not new to Barbados, these type of parties are becoming more of the norm nowadays especially at Crop Over time.

The fetes can start from $100 and can go as high as $300.
