More than 1,000 residents and visitors flocked to Victoria Park in Hamilton yesterday to enjoy a day of family fun.

The event — organised by the Corporation of Hamilton — saw live entertainment, music, and a pie-eating contest among revellers.

Local celebrities — including Bishop of Hamilton Nicholas Dill, scientist Carika Weldon, DJ Rusty G and comedian Nadanjah Bailey — took the plunge after being dumped in a dunk tank in aid of Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Bermuda.

The carnival atmosphere was hosted and MC-ed by city town crier Ed Christopher and Power Girl Patrina O’Connor, while DJ Fury kept energy levels high.

Last night a corporation spokeswoman declared the event a success, adding that more than 1,000 people had attended the event.

She said: “Summer Sundays in the Park has become a staple event in the city events calendar providing a family fun day in the city that celebrates local music and talent while also supporting local vendors.”
