The culmination of the Bermuda’s Heritage Month celebrations is, of course, the Annual Bermuda Day Parade, with this year’s theme being Our Sporting Heritage, on Wednesday, May 24th.

The 2017 Heritage Month theme is a celebration of Bermudian sporting heroes and Bermuda’s favourite sports and games. More than simply a past-time for children, sport has always been an opportunity for demonstrating determination, teaching teamwork, and exemplifying excellence. Whether you reflect on Bermuda’s nautical beginnings and current historic hosting of the America’s Cup, if you are a fan of football, or if you hit sixes at cricket, there is no denying the passion that sport inspires. Even amateur marble players, rope jumpers, and traditional game participants are part of the storied legacy of Bermuda’s sports. From the fierce loyalty to Cup Match teams, to the rallying unity to support a Bermudian Olympian, Bermuda has continued to build a sporting heritage to be proud of.

The parade will include all the usual favourites – floats, gombeys, majorettes, pipers, drum corps and dance troops- and will move along Marsh Folly Road from 1.30pm, and will continue right through to the top of Cedar Avenue.  The parade then turns left onto Church Street, takes a right down Court Street, a right along Front Street, and finally up Queen Street. Groups will have a final performance at City Hall Car Park. Floats will make a right turn on to Church Street, park in front of City Hall and remain there on display throughout the afternoon.

For more information, including updates on the day’s schedule, visit www.CommunityandCulture.bm.
