Bermuda Day Parade – May 24th is Bermuda Day – the highlight of Heritage Month in Bermuda. Formerly, this national holiday was to celebrate the birthday of Queen Victoria but today it is simply a celebration of our people, heritage and culture. The day’s traditional events include a series of exciting and fast paced road races which take place in the morning. The parade itself is held in the afternoon, winding through the streets of Hamilton with colourful themed floats, dancing gombeys, majorettes and much more at this massive hoopla of Bermudian culture.
