The Ceremonial Delivery of the Last Canes (blessing of the last canes), is a cultural event used to crown the King and Queen of the Sugar Cane Crop Industry, as well as paying tribute to Crop Over Stalwarts, the many ethnic groupings existing in Barbados and the unique features of Barbadian heritage and culture.
These are some of many NCF Events for the official calendar of the Barbados official Crop Over Festival Season.
