Something's Happening: April 2019

By Blue Sky Luxury on Thursday, March 14, 2019

 

Guess what? April means it's properly spring time, so spring into action this month with a little motivation from our Concierge Can team in helping you to decide your next move. For many locals this time of the year is much anticipated as it signals the Barbados Reggae Festival, which is usually an amazing showcase of local and regional talent dedicated to reggae lovers. Or maybe, you want to embark on "a remarkable journey where island relaxation and festival culture seamlessly intersect", that is the Vujaday Music Festival. If festivals don't inspire you, there are many more activities on this to-do list compiled to encourage memorarable moments. Enjoy.
