BHW Lineup 0505

5 Star Friday on Friday, June 14

A spokesperson said, “A constellation of luminous voices will launch our first event, 5 Star Friday, on June 14th. From 7 pm to 2 am this 18+ only affair will feature The Speechless Tour at the City Hall Car park.

“As the name implies, Kerwin Du Bois, Lyrikal, Voice, and Teddyson John are coming to woo the ladies and leave everyone’s senses awed and amazed. They have already promised to elevate this opening foray to astral planes of musical rapture, with stellar performances, and a few surprises guaranteed to have the full party breathless and eager for more.

Raft Up on Saturday, June 15

“Shelly Bay! We are heading your way next for our world famous Raft Up! Saturday, June 15th, get in your beachwear and get your bodies to the sole fete where you can revel in the sand, float and wine in the water, or bounce to the beat in your yacht. Your beloved floating DJ platform will be back, pelting out big tune after big tune!

“From 12 pm to 6 pm link with your whole crew in the pink sand and crystalline waters, while your favourite local and Caribbean DJs, along with a few surprise guest artists, keep the party vibes as magical as the landscape.

J’Ouvert on Monday, June 17

“After this most reverent form of Sun worship, the BHW Ltd. team now invites you to dance shamelessly in the dark of night, as we collectively witness the misty dawn breaking on another picturesque Bermuda morning. Join the Rum Hogs, Lady Longtails, Bermuda Cedars, Pretty Petrels, and of course the notorious Scallywags, when they come out in full force to see who is made to walk the plank at BHW Isle of Devils J’Ouvert.

“On this our return to Moresby Plains in Dockyard, from 3 am until 8 am on Monday, June 17th, survival will mean being wild and dutty, even as you embrace both the beautiful and the damned. Another 18+ event.

BHW Parade of Bands and Last Lap on Monday, June 17

“Then in a Grand Finale 5 years in the making, the City of Hamilton will present to you our loyal supporters, the BHW Parade of Bands and Last Lap. This is your chance to become a part of the Mas. Where you truly become a living work of art in your costume on display for the world to see.

“For 2019 we have a brand new path to follow, which takes us through the unforgettable City of Hamilton, and alongside its eye-catching harbour. The festivities begin at 10 am on Monday, June 17th, and do not end until everyone gets their final taste of feting at 10 pm in the Last Lap at City Hall Car Park. If you are a newcomer, this is where patrons, DJs, and masqueraders enjoy the last moments of this astounding celebration in absolute camaraderie.

“Tickets for all of these events are on sale now and going a lot faster than you can imagine.”

    No pan in the park and what is the route for the parade please.

  2. wahoo says:

    I am sure our heroes would be proud that we honor them this way.

    • bluenose says:

      Very sad. smdh.

      • Payattention says:

        Agreed. By all means let’s all enjoy the festivities! However, it should be separate and apart from National Heroes Day. The events have little to do with our National Heros… They are not being honored in any way during these particular events and honestly it is insulting. Most of the participants won’t even know who the heros are.

        • PBanks says:

          It’s not the responsibility of the Heroes Weekend organisation to do this. Govt should long ago have partnered with them to have events that do pay honour to designated National Heroes.

    • PBanks says:

      National Heroes’ Day was created by government, and badly administered by government. Aside from maybe the first year or two of its implementation, there’s been little in the way of promotion, events or reach-outs by whoever’s been in charge of setting out the holiday. Even now, we don’t know if any new persons have been nominated as National Hero, if the process for selection has changed or literally anything else about the day itself.

      BHW is a private organisation, in the entertainment sphere. They’re not a charity or in the business of public service. Lobby government to either get off its behind or outsource their own (lack of) festivities to a group that can.

  3. BringitBr says:

    Yea its such a shame that we just have to get drunk and celebrate this way smh. Seems like partying is the only thing to do in this sad island.

    • Rebecca Smith says:

      I believe the library will still be open if you would like to go read a book.

  4. Dunn juice says:

    My top two nominations for hero.
    Wayne furbert
    Walton brown

  5. What says:

    Shelly Bay? What do the women against the rest of Bermuda hosting events there have to say? Surely they are not pleased with people parking and parting at that Beach?

    • Smh says:

      They cant control the ocean

    • PBanks says:

      After the screwup with trash last time out, there should be a greater focus on keeping the waters and beach area as free from littering as possible.

  6. Question says:

    I wonder if the new gazebo and rubber mat will be there in time for this.

  7. Why says:

    What about the kids? You’ve taken away kiddie carnival and now they can’t attend 5 star friday? SMH

    • kiddie carnival? says:

      Kids were being taught to wear next to nothing and gyrate like the adults?

    • PBanks says:

      Hm, that’s pretty sucky that there’s no kiddie carnival. Can’t claim to be the ‘fastest growing carnival’ if there’s no element to introduce the young’uns to the scene with things that cater to them.

  8. Sandgrownan says:

    Nope – still Queen’s Birthday holiday

    • PBanks says:

      Well you still have the Queen’s parade you can attend on the Saturday before, right? Something for everyone!

  9. substance abuse weekend says:

    Lets be honest- it is not really Heroes Day Weekend, but SUBSTANCE ABUSE WEEKEND.
    If you like to do that, fine- go ahead I am not asking you to stop. But call it what it really is.
