Chewstick Vibes During Bermuda Day

May 24, 2017

The Chewstick Foundation is inviting the public to join them in recognizing Bermuda’s Heritage in a number of ways.

A spokesperson said, “Today, The Chewstick Foundation invites the community to join them in recognizing Bermuda’s Heritage in a number of ways! First, during the parade The Chewstick Foundation and Imagine Bermuda, are inviting all of Bermuda to “Shur De Ball”.

“With a unique concept along the route which will remind us that it is the responsibility of each and every one of us to steward not just our culture but the future of our island home. “Shur the Ball” is an invitation to take ownership of the unique role each of us has to play. A large football will follow the path determined by those who actively participate in keeping it moving forward. In the same way, we can all do our part in determining where our beautiful island nation will go.

“The festivities will continue at City Hall Car Park as community members are invited to “Be A Gombey” at a Chewstick Community Art Programme Gombey Photo installation featuring colorful Gombeys created by members of the Chewstick Foundation with the support of the Department of Community & Cultural Affairs. Chewstick hopes that attendees will create lasting memories while celebrating and honoring the iconic Bermuda Gombey. These pieces were created as part of a broader partnership, which has seen the production of a number of Heritage Month events, including an iconic Gombey mural installation being completed throughout the month of May at Gombeys at Clearwater Beach, an Open Mic which took place on Saturday, May 13th at Sweet Saak Bakery and a Heritage Showcase at The Grand on Saturday, May 20th and will continue at Bungalow 56 on Thursday, May 25th.
