Bermuda Day Parade 2017: Our Sporting Heritage
Time: 1:30pm – 6:00pm Location: City of Hamilton, Bermuda
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.
