What's happening in Barbados - December


The months of November and December are some of the most exciting in Barbados. November brought us The Barbados Open Water Festival, Nifca and yet to come is Independence Day in Barbados which falls on November 30th! This is a special time for Barbadians so check out our blog on what Independence means to Barbados and how we celebrate it…Bajan style! As December approaches, the festive season is on every one’s minds so our December Edition of “Something’s Happening” tells you what’s happening in December. We look forward to the Run Barbados Marathon Weekend that runs (pun intended) from December 7th – 9th. Carols by Candlelight, a magical evening of candlelight and music in aid of raising funds for the less fortunate in Barbados and not to be missed K9 Charity usually hosted by Simon Cowell and Lauren Silverman.
