On Bermuda Day, the island comes alive with colourful parades, music, dance performances, and various sporting events. The highlight of the day is the Heritage Day Parade, which features local bands, dance troupes, floats, and community groups marching through the streets of Hamilton, the capital city. The parade showcases the island’s diverse cultural heritage, including African, Caribbean, and British influences.
In addition to the parade, people participate in activities such as boat races, cycling races, and a marathon. Many Bermudians also dress in traditional attire, including the iconic Bermuda shorts, which are knee-length shorts worn with knee socks, blazers, and ties. The day is also an opportunity for locals and tourists to enjoy picnics, beach parties, and other outdoor festivities.
