November 19, 2019 | 2 Comments

The  Festival of Lights is returning to the Botanical Gardens this holiday season, set to start on November 30th.

A spokesperson said, “The popular Festival of Lights, powered by The Bermuda Electric Light Company Limited “BELCO” and supported by The Department of Parks, is returning to the Botanical Gardens this holiday season.

“Between 6pm and 9pm every Saturday, from November 30th until December 21st, Festival of Lights promises to provide a spectacular experience for the whole family.

“After months of planning and weeks of preparation, the Botanical Gardens will be transformed into an unforgettable winter wonderland. BELCO is supplying thousands of lights, dozens of volunteers and the electricity to bring this magical experience to life.

“Although there is no entry fee to enjoy Festival of Lights, BELCO will be collecting donations at the event for this year’s selected charity, WindReach.

“WindReach offers therapeutic, educational and recreational experiences for people with varying physical and intellectual abilities. WindReach has helped thousands of individuals living with special needs since opening in 1999.

“Today, it is a fully-accessible 4-acre facility that features a multi-purpose activity centre, a petting zoo, a therapeutic riding centre, newly redesigned, accessible playground, and a renovated cottage as a hub for their expanding services geared specifically for older adults. On average, 200 participants benefit from the programmes at WindReach on a weekly basis.

“In addition to collecting donations, BELCO will sell food and beverages at the event, with all proceeds going directly to WindReach.”

“BELCO is very excited to support WindReach as they continue to serve those members of our community with special needs and varying abilities,” said BELCO President Mr. Dennis Pimentel. “We encourage everyone to come out with their families and friends to experience the beauty and magic of The Festival of Lights.”
