Earlier this week, we had a Topical Storm, thank God it wasn't anything too serious and there was no damage done here, at least not reported. It was quite a lazy week for me too, I haven't done much more than work. :(
Yesterday was Pan Fusion at Illaro Court, while this Saturday is Pan in De City & Cruise. It's a new twist on the old Pan in De City, where steel orchestras would walk through town playing, and set up in various areas and entertain passers-by. This new concept includes a cruise filled with pan music to the North of Barbados, so you basically have steel pan entertainment in 2 cities, Bridgetown then Speightstown. I think it's quite interesting as cruises have become increasingly popular here and it is a fun way to in-cooperate pan into that. It gives the event a new dimension. Typically the entertainment in the city is free, but the cruise would cost you a bit.
It's the weekend and there will be tons of events going on...
