Front Street will light up again when the island’s longest-running street festival returns in May.

The 2020 Harbour Nights season will begin on May 6 and run every Wednesday until August 26 with vendors, entertainers and appearances by the traditional Gombeys.

Charles Gosling, the Mayor of Hamilton, said: “The City of Hamilton is delighted to continue its support of Harbour Nights in Hamilton. As the centre for commerce and trade, the importance of Harbour Nights in Hamilton and the exposure it brings to smaller entrepreneurial businesses is invaluable.

“The knock-on effect of additional foot traffic stimulates the bottom line for our rate-paying retailers and restaurants and the vibe and energy of these now famous Wednesday nights speaks directly to the city’s mandate to be a vibrant one.”

Glenn Jones, chief experience development officer for the Bermuda Tourism Authority, said the organisation was happy to continue as lead sponsor for the event.

He said: “We are proud to once again support the Harbour Nights tradition of matching travellers from around the world with our country’s makers of Bermuda-inspired food, art and other take-home keepsakes.”

The Bermuda Chamber of Commerce, which organises the event, has invited potential first-time vendors to an information session on February 26.

A meeting for veteran vendors will be held on March 4. Both meetings will begin at 5.30pm at the Chamber’s offices at Albuoys Point in Hamilton. To register, e-mail tcminors@bcc.bm.
