Entertainers and vendors will come together for the return of the island’s longest-running street festival next week.

The Bermuda Chamber of Commerce said Harbour Nights will be on Front Street from 7pm until 10pm on June 1 and every Wednesday through to August 31.

A spokeswoman added: “With the City of Hamilton and Butterfield signed on as the two major sponsors of this year’s event we can expect the return of classic Harbour Nights features such as the Gombeys and an array of local entertainment and demonstrations throughout the summer.

“Festival attendees can expect over 60 local vendors who will line the street ready to sell an array of treats and experiences for the whole family.

“There is something for everyone at Harbour Nights this year.”

Charles Gosling, the Mayor of Hamilton, said that the city was “delighted” to continue its support of the festival.

He added: “As the centre for commerce and trade, the importance of Harbour Nights in Hamilton and the exposure it brings to smaller entrepreneurial businesses is invaluable.

“The knock-on effect of additional foot traffic stimulates the bottom line for our rate-paying retailers and restaurants and the vibe and energy of these now famous Wednesday nights speaks directly to the city’s mandate to be a vibrant one.

“We all need to remember that when it comes to our visitors, they chose Bermuda, they could have gone anywhere in the world and they came to these shores.

“We need to ensure that we provide experiences that speak to our people and our culture. Harbour Nights does that.

“I’d like to thank the Chamber of Commerce for their continued investment in Harbour Nights and all they do to better this important tourism product.”

Residents were asked to join in the event and the Chamber reminded the public that car and bike parking will be prohibited every Wednesday after 5pm along Front Street as well as in the number one and number five car parks.
