Photo Set #2: Parade of Bands In Dockyard

June 13, 2015

The inaugural Bermuda Heroes Weekend continued this afternoon [June 13] with the Parade of Bands taking place in Dockyard. The streets were lined with all forms of seating and comforts as crowds of people gathered to watch as dancers followed trucks blasting their favorite soca tunes.

The 4-day event kicked off last night with a stage show in Hamilton, which was followed by the early morning J’Ouvert celebrations in Dockyard, Bermuda Heroes Weekend will continue tomorrow with the Pan In The Park in Victoria Street, and the Raft-Up off Admiralty House will take place on Monday. You can see all our coverage of Bermuda Heroes Weekend here.

With flags, towels and any other form of cloth being waved in the air and gyrating bodies traversing the streets, lots of the spectators felt moved to jump up and join the party following along as the groups passed by.

Area businesses saw an increased trade as the hot clear day sent attendees looking for refreshments and food. Those that forged their way to the cruise ship pier had many choices of refreshments on offer by the many vendors set up at the parade finish area.

    Sad, this is gross against God. God closes his eyes when he sees such filth.

      I thought God saw everything.

      They are wearing more than figleaves (and more than most beachgoers).

      Only in Bermuda can we have a formal military salute to the Queen and an island carnival over the same weekend. Both highlight the varied rich culture that has shaped the island, both are important yet people are hating on both.

      I do think the cars should have stayed off track though.

      Tomorrow night we have the added bonus of the football.

      I’ve got my ticket.

      Go Bermy!!
