The “big people party” concept seems to be gaining momentum based on the just concluded Crop Over.
At least three events catering to the older demographics reaped huge success with fetes, the latest being the “BARP” soca party.
Peter Boyce, who organises Golden Soca, commonly referred to as the “BARP fete” and attracts mainly older people, said each year the numbers are climbing.
Last year 1 000 people attended the event at the Sea Rocks Dome, Maxwell, Christ Church. This year it went to 1 400.
