Destination Dockyard to launch tonight
The opening night of Destination Dockyard, featuring vendors and entertainment, kicks off this evening.
The summer-long weekly entertainment event, held on the North Lawn, has a special theme each night.
Vendors Night, with more than 20 businesses ranging from wood fired pizzas to eKarts to local fashion and jewellery designs, runs from 6.30pm to 9.30pm.
It will also feature live acts, DJs, entertainment, arts and crafts, and food.
Destination Dockyard will be held on Monday evenings through August 26.
The series had to be cancelled last week due to poor weather.
But Stephanie Rodill, the marketing and events manager for the West End Development Corporation, said the delay “made us even more determined to put on a brilliant show today”.
Entertainment will include DJ iBreeze, the Hindsight Band and Bermuda Dance Academy.
Wedco has partnered with PinkSand Entertainment and the Bermuda Tourism Authority to run the event.
Jonathan Tankard, head of PinkSand, said that cancelling last Monday had been a difficult decision.
He added: “We are treating this as our opening night and we are raring to go and put on a great show that all the family, locals and visitors will enjoy.
“Dockyard is a must go-to destination tonight.”
Along with tonight’s events, shops in the Clocktower Mall will stay open until 9pm.
