Carnival organisers release schedule
The newest hosts of Bermuda’s Carnival released their plans for a weekend aimed at attracting revellers from around the world.
The Bermuda Mas Band Association said that overnight parties and colourful parades would be the name of the game for Carnival in Bermuda, a revival of Carnival-style festivities for Bermuda Heroes Weekend from June 16 to June 20.
Keidric Smith, a founder of the Bermuda Mas Band Association, said: “The bands behind the BMBA are creating a new and refreshing experience that highlights Bermudian talent, culture and artist, designers and people.
"We give all thanks to past organisers of Bermuda Carnival events who paved the way, and we look forward to bringing this epic event to locals and visitors for years to come."
The event kicks off after the previous organisers of the Bermuda Carnival announced they would step down from organising festivities to make room for another organisation.
The weekend will start off with an all-inclusive fete on June 16 and continue with an early morning sunrise party.
The rest of the weekend will include a raft-up and several parties with themes such as “beach chic” and “Moroccan White” before ending in a revel de Road parade on June 20.
Nova Mas International and Party People Entertainment, the two premier bands of Revel de Road, will offer several packages for attendees that will include costumes and access to events.
