Barbados travel dreaming – Reason #3
Hey there, thanks for being here! In this blog, we’re continuing our Barbados travel dreaming countdown with reason #3. Why are we doing this? Because, we’re sure like us and with everything that’s going on, you need a getaway! And since we’re all pretty much grounded (literally) right now, we can at least go travel dreaming in our minds 🙂

All caught up? Okay, leh we go!
Reason #3 – a VIP parade experience
One of the things we really loved about the Kadooment Parade during Barbados Crop Over is the VIP experience that our local costume provider, Aura, provides.
Hmmm, let’s take a step back because if the last sentence made absolutely no sense to you, we should explain!
In case you didn’t know, Barbados Crop Over is Barbados’ amazingly colourful Carnival where you have lots of chances to dance in the streets (pure freedom!), participate in the Kadooment Parade in full costume and take in everything that this little slice of Caribbean heaven has to offer!
Our costume provider for the Kadooment Parade is Aura, which is a local Barbados band house. We’ve truly loved working with Aura over the past few years and our clients have especially enjoyed their VIP experience.
What’s the Aura VIP experience?
You can’t get much better Barbados travel dreaming than the Aura VIP experience, which we think is an upgrade that’s worth every penny!
As an Aura VIP masquerader, you get so much to take your Kadooment Parade partying to de next level! From a VIP air-conditioned truck with a private bar, premium drinks, access to a VIP food truck for snacks throughout the day and an upgraded meal at the end of the parade, we guarantee that you’ll want every Carnival experience to be like this!
In addition to your VIP experience, you’ll also get Aura’s standard band security, beautiful costumes to make you feel like a star, mobile rum punch servers, complete with water and ice if you like, lots of eye candy (whoooo!) and live performances from soca artists like Skinny Fabulous and Lil Rick throughout the day.
And then at the end of all of the partying and de bacchanal on de road, you’ll end off your fantastic day right at the beach. Oh yes. After a full day of revelry and indulgence, Aura tops it all off on one of Barbados’ beautiful beaches. After filling your belly with your VIP meal, you can hop in the water to cool off and relax after a hot day!
Out of all of the Carnival parades that we’ve been to, we think Aura has made Barbados’ Kadooment Parade one of the best and we’re so glad we could share this with you during our Barbados travel dreaming! Hope this was fun.
If this all sounds good to you…
