Barbados Independence Parade

The Independence Day Parade brings out thousands of Bajans.  Most of them wear the blue and yellow colours of Barbados and some wave a Barbados flag.

Barbados flags are on sale as well as blue and yellow snow cones.  Some of the women that I met made their own independence clothes just for the occasion.  One even had her own Bajan umbrella.

My favourites in the parade are the mounted policemen because I have a soft spot for horses but I love the uniforms and the marching.

If you want to choose a spot, go early but if you are like me, you will spend your whole time moving around.

This is a time to have your eyes open.  There is so much more to the event than the parade.

Enjoy the pictures and I hope that I have inspired you to go to the next Independence Parade.
