Photos: St David’s Gilbert Lamb Family Fun Day

March 29, 2013

The Gilbert Lamb Family Fun Day took place today [Mar 29] in St David’s, with a host of events including music, a tug-of-war contest, Michael Jackson dance display, hot dog eating competition, beer drinking competition, kite flying, bike racing and of course the famous Mohawk Grand Prix Go-Kart race.

As always the east end event attracted a large crowd, and a few rain showers through the day sent people scurrying for cover. During the Mohawk Grand Prix one of the lead go-karts lost control and someone was injured and received medical care.

One of the go karts in the race was called “GP1″, and when Premier Craig Cannonier arrived there were calls from attendees for the Premier to take a spin in “GP1,” which he did to the crowd’s amusement.

In addition to the Premier, other politicians present included Environment Minister Sylvan Richards — who earlier suffered defeat in an egg-n-spoon race — as well as PLP MP Lovitta Foggo, the area representative.

Vendors were on hand with goods for sale, including the traditional holiday fare of hot cross buns and fishcakes. You can view all our coverage of the annual Gilbert Lamb Family Fun Day here, and all our coverage of Good Friday here.

    Congratulations St. David’s for bringing communities together in clean fun. Not just your own residents but open to all for no cost but a great attitude and festive fun. Thank you!

    • I agree DreamCatcher: It’d been,(as alway)a fantastic day with them. I often see(and them I seldom may see)that “Good Friday” is when one can be guaranteed of a great holiday :-)

    Been going to Good Friday events in the east end for years.
    that were all the action is to me. – all the traditional Bermudian fun stuff comes out.
    not taking nothing from other events or community events elsewhere but St.Davids has the best Good Friday program
    and the most intense especialy with the go cart racing. —- loved it!
    St.Davids is the only place in Bermuda were you find this level and variety of intertainment on Good Friday -
    can’t wait to go to the big indian festival in June -that allways real good too.
