Pork, pan and parang party


Share post:

CHRISTMAS CAME early for a number of local entrepreneurs and patrons on Saturday when the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre (LESC) hosted its inaugural Pork, Pan and Parang Festival.

Head of sales and marketing, Alison Roach-Plummer, said the event was hosted as a way to allow people to still celebrate Christmas in the traditional way, but with all COVID-19 protocols in place.

“Normally, people would have their pork, their pan playing, parang and their pork. So it was done to encompass all those elements in a safe environment. I wanted to also embrace and encourage people, the small businesses especially who have been reeling and have been hurt by COVID, that they still had an opportunity to come out and be able to sell and feel the merriment of the season,” she said.

Some of the entrepreneurs who had items on display included noted criminologist Kim Ramsay, who was present with her trilogy series on crime and criminals across Barbados’ landscape, Envision Event Rentals, Harts Smoke House, Crumbz Bakery, Anointed Hands, Animekon, mixologist Casanova Liquid Artistry, artist Ashanti Trotman with his acclaimed mahogany pieces, Rosebud Creations, the Snack Lady and Designs by Tanya.
