You’ll be in for a cultural extravaganza as Barbados takes over the arena and transports game attendees to Rihanna’s homeland. The Barbadian flair will come to life as attendees dance to live music from local Bajan singers and eat culinary delights from a Bajan chef and mixologist that will be on-site.
Elan Trotman, will entice attendees with his saxophone performance. Attendees will get a taste of why Barbados has been named the Culinary Capital of the Caribbean and the Birthplace of Rum with food and drinks being provided by Javon Cummins, award-winning head chef at Treasure Beach, and Philip “Casanova” Antoine, award-winning mixologist.
Decked out in dazzling Crop Over costumes, special appearances will be made by Lesley Chapman-Andrews, Miss Universe Barbados 2017; Meghan Theobalds, Miss Universe Barbados 2018; and two Bajan international models, Kimberlyn Parris and Tricia Mitchell.
This year’s event will be even more special as some of Barbados’ very own dancers will perform in Crop Over attire and dance alongside the Brooklynettes to Caribbean music as soca artist, Rupee performs during half time. For the first time ever, the Brooklynettes dance team held auditions outside of Brooklyn and Barbados was their first pick. Earlier this year, the Brooklynettes were supposed to return home with two lucky dancers but were blown away by the talent in Barbados and selected six dancers to perform at Barbados Night at the Barclays Center.
