Winter Wonderland comes to Bermuda College

Bermuda College will be transformed into a Winter Wonderland this Saturday complete with an ice sculpture, train rides and Santa Claus himself.

Guests will enjoy fun castles, games, a marshmallow s'mores stand and Gombey dancers, and will be invited to Santa's workshop where package wrapping and life-size inflatable decorations are being prepared by student ‘elves'. Comedian Nadanja Bailey will also attempt to create the Island's biggest electric slide dance performance (a four wall line dance set to Marcia Griffiths song Electric Boogie).

The Winter Wonderland event is part of the College's 40-year anniversary celebrations and takes place from 5pm to 10pm.

Shelley Riley, one of the co-chairs of the event, said: “This has been in the works for a while. We're a community college, and what better way to celebrate the season than to invite the community on campus to share the holiday spirit.”

Admission is free however the College hopes to raise funds for student scholarships through the sale of food, raffles and games from more than 40 different vendors. Raffle prizes include an iPad, a hotel weekend, food vouchers and more.

“Every employee on campus is committed to student success,” said Ms Riley. “There have been hundreds of volunteer man-hours that have gone into this. We see students coming to class and leaving to go straight to work. They're working very hard to fulfill those further education and career dreams. Everything planned during this 40th anniversary year is going to help our students out. But we also want to celebrate our community as well. We're the only college in Bermuda and we've been setting Bermuda's students on their paths to success for a long time.”
