Community Invited to Revisit ‘Old Bermuda’ at the 2007 Annual Pre-Bermuda Day Parade at MWI

Staff and clients from the Mid-Atlantic Wellness Institute are inviting the community to the 16th Annual Pre-Bermuda Parade on Thursday 10 May at 6:30pm on Devon Springs Road. Costumes and floats with the theme of Old Bermuda have been created by clients and staff from MWI’s learning disability programme.

Adding to the entertainment will be H &H Gombeys, Suave Mete Bikes, Hamilton Parish Hot Peppers Majorettes, PHC Majorettes & Drum Core, PCC Twirlers & Ensemble, and The Centre Drum Line Core. There will also be face painting for children from Sniggles Face Painting and refreshments from the African Food Stall.

Last year a large crowd of over one thousand came to support this community event. Originally founded in 1991, the Pre-Bermuda Day Parade was first organised for clients who wanted to celebrate Heritage Day but were unable to join the parade on May 24. Over the years, MWI’s Pre-Bermuda Day Parade has grown in popularity and attendance and is now a well-anticipated celebration in its own right.

Patrice Dill, Chief Operating Officer, MWI & Continuing Care, said, “We have an exciting event planned and encourage the community to come out and join in the fun. Families will enjoy a wonderful evening with great entertainment, food and music, and be part of a truly vibrant and meaningful event for clients who have put so much work into the parade”

Juliette Basden, Activities Coordinator, said, “Preparation for the Pre-Bermuda Day Parade has been creating a lot of excitement at MWI and our floats and costumes look fantastic. So much work is put into making this an exciting, lively event for the whole family. This is a wonderful opportunity for our clients to express their creativity and celebrate the approaching Heritage Day at a public event. We look forward to welcoming the community on May 10th.”

Parking will be available at Elliott School and people wishing to attend are advised that the road will be closed from 6.15 pm in time for the parade’s start at 6.30pm.
