Come out and party at Bermuda Heroes Weekend

Bermuda Heroes Weekend organisers yesterday predicted a successful event.

Jason Sukdeo, BHW president, said: “Everything is coming together really well this year.

“The one thing we were concerned about is the weather, but right now everything is looking like it's going to be fine.”

He added: “If you don't come out, you're going to regret it on Tuesday.”

Mr Sukdeo said: “We are asking people to stay safe. That's really the number one thing. Go out, have a good time, but drive safe and stay safe.”

The weekend will kick off at Hamilton City Hall car with music as the 5 Star Friday concert launches the celebrations at 7pm tonight.

Shelly Bay in Hamilton Parish will be the venue tomorrow for the Bermuda Heroes Weekend Raft Up with island and international DJs providing entertainment from noon to 6pm.

The party will continue on Sunday with the Pan in the Park, a range of steel pan drum performers, on stage at Victoria Park in Hamilton between 3pm and 7pm.

The Cirque Du Soca J'Ouvert will ring in National Heroes Day on Monday and bring music to Bernard's Park in Pembroke from 3am to 8am.

The weekend will climax with the Parade of Bands, which will feature music, dancing and spectacular carnival outfits at Southside, St David's, on Monday.

The parade is set to kick off at Clearwater Beach at 10am with revellers dancing their way to Number One Gate.
