Photo Set #3: Parade of Bands In Dockyard

June 14, 2015

Massive crowds made their way to Dockyard yesterday [June 13] for the Parade of Bands, with the west end filled with the sounds of soca music and a carnival atmosphere. The Parade of Bands was the third event in the inaugural Bermuda Heroes Weekend, which involves four days of events being held across the island.

    I wonder what a independence Day celebration will look like?

        Guess it takes a troll to know a troll.
        Not to worry Alvin, independence can’t come soon enough.
        Maybe then they will return back to Europe and be happy with their kind.
        Oh wait, they left Europe to get away…

        Things that make you go, hmmmmmmmmmmmmm

      I imagine there would be many, many fewer people—as we know 70%+ of the public *don’t* want independence.

      A Bermudian independence celebration would look nothing like this… Just a bunch of politicians on a soapbox trying to brainwash the masses with their hollow speeches. All it would be is a majority of people sitting down with their portable chairs sitting down and people-watching… A few Gombey dancers and majorettes….. true bermuda style, don’t get it mixed with a true West Indian cultural event.

      Only when you have West Indian events that people tend to be festive and party, i.e. Soca vs. Reggae or in this case Carnival.

      Even still you had bermudians complain about this event. i.e scantily clad women dancing etc..

    • @ Alvin: While you are “wondering”. Just imagine Bermuda a year later when our dollar isn’t worth the paper it’s printed upon :-(
