The Bermuda Chamber of Commerce confirmed that Harbour nights will take place as scheduled this evening [May 23] starting at 7pm.
In making the announcement Chamber Executive Director Joanne MacPhee noted, “The Chamber is delighted that the rain has abated and it is all systems go for tonight’s very special Harbour Nights. “
Mrs. MacPhee went on to state that “Tonight is of particular importance, first and foremost because it is being proudly sponsored by Butterfield Bank, and secondly of course because it falls on the eve of the May 24th holiday. As a result, we have a very special entertainment lineup.
The evening will begin at 7pm with a performance by the visiting Edmonton Pipe & Drum Corp in association with the Pipe, Drum and Dance Corps of the Bermuda Cadet Pipe Band.
This will be followed at 7:30 by an interactive Zumba demonstration. Then at 8pm the Penn State Glee Club will make a guest appearance, to be followed by the Bermuda National Drum Line Academy, local musicians Rivah and the Native Percent Band.”
The Chamber is actively encouraging everyone to kick their holiday weekend into high gear by coming out tonight to support the international and local artists and the many local craft and food vendors who will be out for this special night. The Chamber also wishes to remind the public that many retailers will also be open late to accommodate last minute holiday shopping.
