March 23rd, 2016: Bermuda Events Update

Morning to you, all my Easter chicks and bunnies!

 

page

It’s that time of year again!  Even if you don’t celebrate the religious aspect of Easter, most of Bermuda will enjoy hot cross buns with fishcakes, and flying our kites at Horseshoe Bay on Good Friday, in addition to the chocolate coma on Sunday.  Although, maybe I’m just speaking for myself about the whole chocolate coma thing…

This week’s post is relatively short, as is usual the week of a holiday, so be sure to check out the Quick Recap section at the end to see the full list of what’s coming up.

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday weekend in Bermuda!
