    Wow! I want to go all the way next time and get really naked! The heroes would be so proud that we could celebrate them and their achievements by doing weird stuff with no clothes on.

  2. NT says:

    Are they seriously going to make this an all year thing? If it’s a Heroes Weekend why are we constantly bombarded with events for it year round?

    • mixitup says:

      Smh you obviously don’t know what it takes to brimg people to these events do you..

    • biggadon says:

      for the same reasons we are bombarded with Americas cup events year round !

    • Serious Though says:

      You need more information about Carnival …

    • c.Outerbridge says:

      If you don’t like it don’t go! It’s THAT simple!!

      • NT says:

        I won’t. I went once and was bored to tears. Bermudians allowing foreigners to invade and push their culture on us as usual. How about we create our own concepts and ideas.

  3. A Carnival with no G-strings!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Proud Bermudian says:

    Great job BHW!!! Ill be there….with bells and feathers on….

  5. BHW Fan says:

    I cannot wait. Enjoyed myself last year and will again in 2917.
    In response to NT, there should be advertising all year to keep the momentum up and soca junkies informed. Those of use that attend various carnivals like to arrange our calendars accorrdingly. You sound like a negative Nancy and you should not comment nor attend if carnival, playing mas, etc is not your thing. And FYI, all Bermudians, yes ALL Bermudians have kinks to the Carribbean. Do your research please.
    Many of our surnames can be found in Bahamas, Turks&Caicos, Grenada. Matter of fact during thr salt trade, many Bermudians went to Turks & Caicos and stayed!
