Event will celebrate different cultures and raise money for charity
Bermuda’s expatriate community will put their native cultures on display this weekend during a beach day focused on community exchange.
Bermuda International Day on Saturday promises a full day of music, food and entertainment to further cultural exchange on the island and raise cash for important social and environmental problems.
Funds raised through the activities, including a games tournament that will feature activities such as kickball and volleyball, will go to Keep Bermuda Beautiful.
Hannah Emmerson, of the Bermuda Sandcastle Competition, will do a live sandcastle installation from 10am to 1pm before conducting a sandcastle-building workshop for children.
Youngsters involved will be split into 12 teams with a maximum of six children in each. Parents must be present and watch their children during the workshop.
Participants can also join the International Food Vendor Village and offer dishes from their particular region. Seaside Grill, the Best of Bermuda winner, will be among vendors.
Vendors will be given a 10ft-by-10ft space to set up a pop-up tent and sell food in exchange for donation tickets.
Proceeds from these tickets will go towards important social issues in the vendors’ native countries or to a Bermudian charity.
Bermuda International Day celebrations will start on Saturday from 10am to 9pm at Elbow Beach, Paget.
There will be free parking at Bermuda College with a shuttle running every 15 minutes, costing $4 each way.
