Entrepreneurs make Dockyard a destination
Local businesses are taking the opportunity to promote their products and services at Destination Dockyard.
The weekly event returned last month after an absence of a few years and is being run by PinkSand Entertainment, which successfully submitted a request for proposal put out by the West End Development Corporation.
The event takes place every Monday evening until the end of September, with occasional dates in October. It helps showcase local talent, Bermuda restaurants and takeaways, art galleries and other businesses.
With cruise ship visitor numbers on an increase this year, it allows tourists to be entertained and learn about Bermuda food and culture, while also providing locals with something to do on a Monday.
Joanna Cranfield, business development manager at Wedco, said: “Destination Dockyard is a blast at the moment. We have great food and entertainment here. There will be a total of eight food vendors, face painting and tattoo stalls, hair braiding, and more.”
There is entertainment for everyone. Children can enjoy the playground and sports zones, and watch Gombey Dancers, while parents can indulge in a variety of foods and drinks.
There is no charge to enter the event. Destination Dockyard is held each Monday between 7pm and 10pm until September 24. The series will continue on October 6, 15, 21, 26 and 31.
