Celebrating the 2018 Bermuda ‘Heroes Weekend’ Carnival.
Yes, this little paradise island is about to come alive in June, with the island’s highly anticipated annual ‘Heroes Weekend’ carnival. Why highly anticipated? Well, that is because it’s being spoken about as the place to be and now targeted by soca junkies from all over the globe, looking to experience that ultimate carnival island vibe. What’s more, it is attracting top Soca artists and DJs to perform and more importantly, it’s on a beautiful island.
The Bermuda Heroes Weekend is one of the island’s biggest summer celebrations and is rumoured to be the world’s fastest-growing carnival! Subsequently, my flights and accommodation are booked and I simply cannot wait for this carnival. I am excited to go but conducting research into the fetes to attend and what else is on. With only 6 days on this island, there is a lot that can be done.
Five Star Friday seems to be the fete to kick off the carnival celebrations – an opening night extravaganza, hosted by top international and local Soca artists & DJ’s. Bermuda also offers ‘Pan in Park‘, which is said to feature some of the world’s best Steel Pan musicians. An all-night J’ouvert ensues and then it’s onto the main event, the Parade of Bands. However, it will be Raft Up that is being touted as the place to be at, where hundreds of people float and party their way in the water to the fete.
The Bermuda heroes carnival website provides extensive information on events and ticketing. This also seems to be the only website that is selling tickets, with early bird prices ending soon don’t hesitate to buy up if your going!
So with further bookings to do, I will leave you with a taster of events that I am about to experience.
