The annual Barbados Workers’ Union May Day parade was a festival celebrating workers as hundreds of Barbadians took part today.

From its beginning at the Sir Frank Walcott statue, the parade travelled through Pine Road; Tweedside Road; Roebuck Street; Crumpton Street and through The City, ending at Brownes Beach.

There were quite a few private and public entities represented, all with their own music truck to help motivate the walkers.

Some of these included: the Barbados Light & Power; the Barbados National Oil Company; the Ministry of Labour and the Barbados Water Authority.

The last and most vocal group was the Barbados Labour Party, who loudly proclaimed their part in creating the BWU.

There was also support for candidate Marsha Caddle, who received a big welcome as she passed her constituency office along Tweedside Road. (CA)
