    No need to go to Hamilton – can “enjoy” the thumping bass way out in Devonshire. I am sure that all those families with young kids or who need to get some sleep are also “enjoying” the din.

    • rich says:

      For goodness sake. I’m across the harbour in Paget, I’m outside and the sound is faint.

      I’m sure those kids can survive one day a year.

      • Theresa T. says:

        Very quiet you couldn’t hear it once you left the area……Devonshire? ??? I doubt it?!!!-

        • High Road says:

          Instead of celebrating a great event that went without incident (as far as I know)some feel the need to moan…sad

    • Billy Boy says:

      Take a break, it’s a holiday weekend.

    • I and I says:

      You sure you are not in Paget? You sound like the guy who started that insane take back our park campaign!

      • Make my day says:

        What an ignorant comment. Bermuda needs more people trying the save our heritage from people like you. You wont be happy until theres nothing left. Sigh

      • Dumb and Even Dumber says:

        Are you one of the civil servants that came up with this brilliant plan? A depot for trucks in the Botanical Gardens….such genius and right here in Bermuda.

        • SMH says:

          God some people are stupid. How can anyone honestly believe that a project like this makes sense for Bermuda.

          • SMH says:

            Sorry but my replay refers to the guy who made the comment against that take back our park group

      • Enough Said says:

        Not only do I agree with the Take back our park group I also think its time to outsorce Parks. Whats the point of having a Parks dept. if they think something like this makes sense?

      • Carnival Rocks says:

        Agree outsourcing that lot is long overdue. They should start at the top. Shes useless

      • Whatever says:

        What does this comment have to do with the article anyway? And by the way, that guy’s happens to be right but here is not the place for that discussion

    • Just me says:

      Stop being a sourpuss. This is great for Bermuda on so many levels.

    • Mockingjay says:

      It was a very nice event, only F!@# up was, they should have had the stage facing the length of Front Street had too many people concentrated in one little area, other then that is was a good evening.

    • Wayadumb says:

      Ha you were probably hearing national stadium, if that. Lol pack it up.

    • Mockingjay says:

      Not too often I get to see a G-string in public, but it was a good treat.

    • Clieh says:

      That’s why tourist don’t come here! Too many dull people! We’re a tourist destination! Living up! These are things tourist comeback to see!

  2. Seriously?? says:

    Rada Gast…it’s people like YOU who are ALWAYS bemoaning “there’s NOTHING to do in Bermuda!”

  3. Seriously says:

    R u serious tonight… It will be over a 12. Shut up a go sleep!

  4. Animal Lover says:

    I hope everyone enjoyed themselves tonight and got home safely. This is great for our tourism. Please be safe and happy holidays.

  5. Angalina…! Angalina…! Please bring down your concertina…and play a welcome for me…cause I’ll be coming home from sea!

  6. Sherlene says:

    This is why we can’t get anywhere, those regular people have nothing else to do but to complain. If they take it to the BEACH COMPLAIN , NATIONAL FIELD COMPLAIN. Do you want to be in the tourist BUSINESS OUR NOT. I guess you don’t contribute anything to BERMUDA IF YOU GO TO BED EARLY BUT TO COMPLAIN. YOU ALL FORGET THAT YOU WERE YOUNG AT ONE TIME & PROBERLY MADE THE MOST NOISE . Take a pill & rest yourself.

  7. Andy M says:

    Wishing all my friends and former colleagues a happy and safe Holiday weekend from Fort Myers!

  8. Just me says:

    I so enjoyed this and everyone beside me seemed to be doing the same thing. Went to J’Ouvent after. Money well spent. Thank you to all who worked so hard to bring us this fabulous event.

  9. St. D says:

    Great to see new traditions being started. Give people a reason to come to Bermuda – including all those Bermies living overseas. :)

  10. UpsetwithVerdict says:
