Good Morning Kids!
All recovered from Cup Match? Don't worry, there are still plenty of Bermuda events coming to keep you occupied for the rest of the summer:
- First up, just a quick warning that almost half of all tickets for NTDIB Neon have been sold already so grab your tickets soon from www.premierticketsglobal.com if you're planning on attending – they will only be on sale until Tuesday, August 16th or until they sell out, whichever happens first!
- Kid-friendly shenanigans coming up at Water World Family Fun Day on Hen's Island. This will be from Monday, August 8th until Thursday, August 11th, and then from Monday, August 22nd until Thursday, August 26th from 10am until 6pm. A water taxi will be running every 15 minutes from King's Square and $25 includes all activities on the island, such as volleyball, snorkeling, slip 'n' slides and more, with refreshments such as hamburgers, hotdogs and snowballs available for sale. They are also offering discounted rates for groups of 20 or more people. The poster is being revised with new dates but here's the old one. **UPDATE: Tickets are now for sale online at www.premierticketsglobal.com.
- Bermudian dancer and choreographer Eric Bean Jr. presents Return to Paradise, an evening of dance to stimulate positive dialogue about the ills plaguing Bermuda. The show will run from Friday, August 12th until Sunday, August 14th at City Hall Theatre and will feature local dancers Dominique Anderson, Sierra Renae DeSilva, Fredrika Hill and Krystal Smith as well as incorporating the spoken word of flow poets Lauren Francis and Tiffany Paynter. Part proceeds from Return to Paradise will be donated to Suzette Harvey’s Jump Start Dance Foundation and to O’Brian Roberts’ Bermuda Magic, two non-profit organisations that Mr. Bean notes are dedicated to making a positive difference in the lives of young people. Patron tickets are $40, general admission tickets are $25 and, due to support from the National Dance Foundation of Bermuda to encourage attendance by young people, student tickets are priced at just $5 each. Tickets can be purchased by visiting http://jariccodance.com and contacting Mr. Bean via email. Here's the flyer!
- Next Saturday, August 13th marks the 12th Annual Sunshine League Moon Walk! Each summer the Sunshine League puts on an evening walk-a-thon and picnic. This will be from 6.15pm and the walk will be taking place along Southshore, from Warwick park/playground to Church Bay and back – about 5.5 miles in total. The cost of registration is $20 for adults and $5 for children under 12. The runner/walker with the highest pledges will win two round-trip Jet Blue tickets. For more information or to volunteer for this event, contact firstname.lastname@example.org Here is the flyer and the registration and pledge forms are available for download at www.sunshineleague.bm/events.php.
