Barbados was in the spotlight this past weekend as the destination marked a pair of milestones and new tourism initiatives on the Toronto waterfront.

After a brief hiatus, the Barbados on the Water festival returned this weekend to Toronto’s Harbourfront Centre, a free three-day event celebrating all things Barbados since 1996. Co-produced by Barbados Tourism Marketing Inc. (BTMI), the festival got underway Friday night (May 27) with music, refreshments and opening remarks from dignitaries including Haynesley Benn, Barbados’ Consul-General at Toronto and Yvonne Walkes, Barbados’ High Commissioner to Canada.
