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.”
