This week things are heating up for Crop Over, more and more events hosted by the NCF and private persons are scheduled. I'm hoping that before the season is out I go to a Pork Lime!
Today is actually a big event, the Sweet Soca Semi Finals, taking place at the Party Stand from 10 pm. I'm not going to be attending this event sadly, but you can see the list of performers here. Early bird tickets are $20 and patrons will pay $30 at the door. This would be a great after-work event to attend because you can lime while enjoying live performances.
