Photo Set #3: Bermuda Day Heritage Parade

May 26, 2018 | 1 Comment

Floats, dance groups, majorettes, Gombeys, marching bands and more took to Hamilton streets yesterday [May 25] for the annual Bermuda Day Heritage Parade, continuing an island tradition that has been held since 1979. .

In the official Bermuda Day booklet, Premier David Burt in part said “Bermuda Day is one of my favorite Bermuda holidays. There are so many reasons to love Bermuda Day, from the intricately-designed parade floats, the show of physical strength and determination during the half-marathon race, and the hypnotic beat of the Gombey drum – there is something for everyone. But the best thing about Bermuda Day is that it highlights the culture we have in common, something which is captured in this year’s theme, What We Share.”

.

The parade got underway yesterday afternoon, following the cycling and half-marathon races, which were held earlier in the day and saw Lamont Marshall and Nikki Butterfield win the 2018 Bermuda Day Half Marathon Derby.
