It has gained recognition not only for mouth watering Bajan delicacies but also as a cultural extravaganza with something for everyone.

When weekend arrive hundreds of Bajans and visitors a like flock to this small fishing village on Barbados South coast, to un-wind and start the weekend celebration. From early in the evening the area is filled with activities as the friendly fun-loving crowd makes their way to the many bars and food stalls with their typical Bajan menu.
