Happiness is everything. The heart yearns for it. And laughing is about the only thing to defuse uneasiness, hatred, and indifference. Crop Over, is just the thing to get you happy. It is unadulterated pleasure.

NOTE:
New images of Kadooment Day 2007 will be added from time to time as I edit and process them. So check back when time permits. Thanks.
