Saturday, June 25, will mark the 5th anniversary of the inscription of Historic Bridgetown and its Garrison on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

To celebrate the occasion, Historic Bridgetown will be transformed into a cultural hive of activity with performances by popular artists, fashion shows, food and arts and craft displays.

From noon, Independence Square will be the focal point of activity, with exhibitions of heritage artefacts, heritage-related products and services, and art.

Members of the public will also witness the much talked about ‘Changing of the Sentry’, which will be staged at 3:30 p.m. Then, at 4:00 p.m., attention will shift to Heroes Square, where the Ceremonial Delivery of the Last Canes will signal the official start of the Crop Over Festival.

The anniversary activities will form part of City Fest, which is an annual celebration coordinated by the National Cultural Foundation to launch the Crop Over Festival.
