The sounds of bagpipes mingled with the beat of Gombey Dancers in Dockyard this weekend as the island's culture was celebrated.

Local vendors also showcased Bermuda cuisine, art and jewellery on the Clocktower Lawn during yesterday's event that was organised to help mark Heritage Month. Rebekah Cabrall, the West End Development Corporation's marketing and social media coordinator, hailed the event a great success.

“It went very well,” she said. “We had two ships in port; one that left at 3pm and the other which just arrived in the morning; so it was great to give both visitors and locals this cultural experience. We certainly fulfilled our goal as there was a steady flow of people attending the event throughout the day and everyone who attended seemed to really enjoy the event.

“The Department of Cultural Affairs and Wedco even received many comments of thanks for putting on the event, which successfully showcased many cultures that make up Bermuda's rich and unique tapestry. We look forward to providing more of these events in the future, for locals and visitors to enjoy.”
