‘Family Fun Fest’ To Be Held This Saturday

June 28, 2022

A ‘Family Fun Fest’ to mark the anniversary of the 1959 Theatre Boycott will be held on Saturday [July 2] at City Hall.

A spokesperson said, “This weekend’s rain has begun to renew vegetation, after a period of drought. This exemplifies the capacity of living systems to recreate, following challenging circumstances.

“This is a reminder of July 2, 1959, a tipping-point of social restoration for Bermuda. In that example, enough people accessing their best, came ‘2gether’ in peaceful engagement and brought about the Theatre Boycott success. The rest is history.

“Here in 2022, we are experiencing evidence of another social ‘drought’ – globally and locally. Drawing from our legacy of ’59, people -outside their boxes – are coming 2gether with a collective effort to promote social renewal to benefit our community.

“One such example is the collaboration for the free ‘July 2gather Family Fun Fest’ coming on Saturday, July 2, 2022 from 6 – 8.30 pm at City Hall. The goal is to foster the spirit of togetherness, while providing opportunities for family enjoyment and recreation.
