Parade of Bands to get longer route

First Prev 1 2 Next Last

Masqueraders taking part in this year's Parade of Bands will have twice the distance to peacock.

Participants in the Bermuda Heroes Weekend event will have the option this year of making either one or two laps around the St David's route.

Jason Sukdeo, president of Bermuda Heroes Weekend, said the move was made in response to public demand since the event started in 2015.

He added: “We started Parade of Bands in Dockyard and expanded the following year to Southside.

“We are now meeting the demands by doubling the parade route.”

The parade starts at Clearwater Beach at 10am on June 18.

It will move along Southside Road towards Number One Gate.

Parade participants will stop for an hour-long lunch before the second lap at 2pm taking marchers on the same route back to the beach.

Mr Sukdeo said it was up to participants to decide which parade experience they wanted.

He said: “If you can handle it, come at 10am for the full parade or if you want to sleep in a little longer after J'Ouvert, meet us at Number One Gate for the second lap.

“Parade of Bands will be the ultimate Bermuda Heroes Weekend experience this year.”
