Hamilton celebrates spring with string of outdoor events
The Corporation of Hamilton will host a series of outdoor activities in the city next week to celebrate the arrival of spring.
Live entertainment, free ice cream and the chance to win a bouquet of flowers are some of the goodies up for grabs each day.
Tamara Smith, the corporation’s senior events and marketing co-ordinator, said: “We are inviting the community to join us as we celebrate ‘all things spring’ with a week-long line-up of individually themed days.
“Liven up your lunch break with a free yoga class on the City Hall lawn, free mini massages and live music in the park. Drop an inspirational quote or uplifting story on our gratitude wall, or spin our Flower Power Wheel to win a free bouquet.”
The lunchtime events kick off with Mix and Roll Monday, when mobile vendor Mix + Roll will be serving up free ice cream tacos between 12pm and 2pm.
On Tuesday, local band Silver City will be performing on the steps of City Hall, while free lemonade will be provided by Ashley’s Lemonade.
A free yoga class given by Shamana Circle will be held on the lawn of City Hall on Wellbeing Wednesday, while the Siam Spa will provide chair massages. Free, fresh-pressed juices will be available from OM Juicery.
On Thoughtful Thursday, a giant gratitude wall will be erected, where people can reflect and write down what moves them — inspirational words or a kind message for others. There will also be free “pay it forward” cookie giveaways with each cookie decorated with an inspirational message.
On Flower Friday there will be a chance to win a bouquet of flowers by spinning a flower power wheel against a flower wall backdrop.
The week culminates with a live performance from the band Aimee & Davy at Victoria Park on Saturday. The park’s bandstand will be festooned with flowers sourced locally by the Garden Club of Bermuda, while guests can enjoy delicious, free desserts from popular food concession Leslie’s Desserts.
Wellbeing Wednesday will take place between 12.30pm and 2.30pm while Saturday’s concert runs between 12pm and 3pm. All other events take place between 12pm and 2pm.
