1203 Americas Cup

Well, we did it – the America’s Cup will be arriving in Bermuda today!  To celebrate this historic moment, there will be a day of celebrations.  The Cup will touch down at L.F. Wade at 2pm and will then travel in a Police-led motorcade from the airport to the Cabinet Office on Front Street. Along the route, the motorcade will drive by some local schools so that students can see the Cup as it passes by. Once at Cabinet Office, the Premier, The Hon. Michael Dunkley, JP MP, will host a special press conference to officially receive the America’s Cup.

Best of all, a special block party will be held on Front Street, which will be closed to traffic from 5.30pm. There will be a presentation ceremony at the Flagpole at 5.45pm, where the actual America’s Cup will be presented to Bermuda and accepted by the Premier, with the Bermuda Regiment Band and Gombeys. At 6.50pm there will be fire dancer performances and from 7.10pm, there will be live music by the local band Working Title. You can also expect a 3-cannon salute and a fireworks display before the event closes at 8pm.
