Come Sunday July 20 hundreds will get to experience one of the most uniquely Barbadian events offered in the island when the now annual First Citizens’/ BTI Bridgetown By Night Heritage Walk is held.
Since its inception, the walk has been heavily patronised by not only Barbadians but persons from the diaspora and tourists to the island.
Promising a spectacular walk this year, Senior Business Development Officer at the National Cultural Foundation Alison Sealy–Smith said its success showed that revenue earnings from cultural tourism was very possible as she called on private sector organisations to see it as an opportune time to get onboard.
Speaking to Barbados TODAY at this morning’s launch at the First Citizen’s office in Warrens St Michael, Sealy–Smith disclosed that while talks with several private sector agencies had already begun, there have been no concrete results so far. Nevertheless, she was positive.
Sealy–Smith, who is also the producer of the event, said from the very first year the event started, its objective was not solely to give persons a cool walk but rather about developing a future in cultural tourism.
