Over three thousand young masqueraders took part in Junior Kadooment this year at the National Stadium.
It was an event met with great excitement by parents and children alike.
15 bands took part with many of Barbados' notable designers involved.
Gwyneth Squires with her "Fruits A Plenty" was a burst of colour on the track as was Renee Ratcliffe’s Under The Big Top.
Other notables included Betty West with "De Global Village" and St. Stephen's Primary "It Happen in Buhbadud Fuh Trute" a tribute to the Merry Men.
The little ones got to strut their stuff with a slightly different route this year.
They began at the stadium then paraded through Stadium Road, on to Bow Road, Codrington Hill, Spooners Hill and ended the big day at Tyrol Cot car park and Lawrence T. Gay School.
St Stephen's Primary School copped two top places at Junior Kadooment 2012.
Its band led by Winsome Thomas, won both the historical and the folklore segment.
Second place in both the historical and folklore categories went to "De Global Village" by Betty West.
"Island in the Sun" by Wayne Smith took third place in the folklore segment.
Third in the historical category went to "Fruits a Plenty" by Gwyneth Squires.
That band also copped second in fantasy and first in the topical segment. It focused on the role of fruits in the health and diet of Barbadians.
First in fantasy was St Gabriel's School band "Under the Big Top" led by Renee Ratcliffe, while third was Kids on the Move with "Secrets of the Sea".
Second in the topical category was Deacons Primary with "Mekkin Sport in Bim", which captured aspects of Barbados' sport traditions including King Dyal.
Rounding out the top three was "School Days are Happy Days" by St Mary's Primary.
