Hi-tech Crop Over


Share post:

CROP OVER has evolved into a hi-tech activity.

Minister of Culture Stephen Lashley made that observation yesterday evening during his address at the First Citizens City Fest And Ceremonial Delivery Of The Last Canes in Heroes Square.

Noting that overseas interest in Crop Over is up because of the various marketing models which have been employed, Lashley also indicated that Barbadians living overseas and visitors alike were using the emerging technologies to purchase costumes online.

But having made that boast, Lashley later said the time had come for a review of Crop Over

The minister said a national consultation would be undertaken as soon as the 2015 edition of the Sweetest Summer Festival comes to an end. (YB)
