Bermuda Day parade route unveiled
Today the Ministry of Labour, Community Affairs and Sports shared the 2019 Bermuda Day Parade route – which will be starting along Front Street this year.
The Department of Community and Cultural Affairs notes that currently there are just over 50 parade entries – this includes Gombey troupes, majorettes, floats, dance groups, marching bands, music trucks and more.
The parade will begin at 1.30 p.m., Friday 24th May.
This year, the parade will start along Front Street near Albouys Point, with participants lining up on Bermudiana Road/Par-La-Ville Road/Pitts Bay Road.
Parade participants will travel along Front Street, up Court Street, left on Church Street, down Cedar Avenue and conclude at the Marsh Folly Road/Dutton Avenue.
The Minister of Labour, Community Affairs and Sports, the Hon. Lovitta Foggo said today, “Bermuda Day is that time of year when we celebrate all that makes us unique. Our heritage, our culture and our pride as a people – these are the things that bind us together.
“The Bermuda Day Parade is considered to be one of the most anticipated events and by far the biggest cultural event on our calendar. As the public is aware, this year’s theme is Bermudian Excellence, which offers us an opportunity to show off our national pride. This is an occasion where we can highlight our excellence in sports, education, philanthropy, advocacy, business, the arts, hospitality and more. Bermudian Excellence is about celebrating every individual in our society who does their part in making Bermuda great.”
Minister Foggo continued, “Much work has gone into ensuring that Heritage Month was an engaging, cultural experience, and this includes the preparation and planning for the Bermuda Day Parade. I’m excited about attending this year’s parade, and I look forward to engaging and celebrating with all those who will be enjoying this special day.”
