Entertainment scheduled to perform included the Bermuda Islands Pipe Band Dancers, music and dance by the Filipino Association of Bermuda, “Anansi Tales” storytelling by Shurnett Caines, bachata and salsa by Bermuda Latin Vibes, poetry by Andrea Ottley, H&H Gombeys, and the Simons Brothers Band. Food was on sale by the Portuguese Bakery, and there was a display by Amigos da Casa dos Açores da Bermuda, and the Bermuda Library were on hand with books available.
