The Corporation of St. George welcomes all to come out and enjoy the Heritage Nights series in St. George's in July & August.
July 10, 2019, The Corporation of St. George [CoSG] has partnered with PinkSand Entertainment to run a weekly event, Heritage Nights, which will be held every Friday until August 23.
“Each Friday night is an opportunity for visitors to explore the many reasons that make St. George so unique,” said Cyniqua Anderson, CoSG Councillor. “There are a number of things for guests to do when they come down on a Friday night – tour a UNESCO World Heritage Site, check out our unique Bermuda retail offerings and dining experiences, or hang out in King’s Square with live entertainment and our kids zone.”
July 3, 2019, Heritage Nights are to return to the Town of St George next week after a decade’s absence. Businesses, restaurants and historic sites will welcome visitors on Friday nights.
George Dowling III, the Mayor of St George, said last night: “We took to reviving Heritage Nights, to engage both locals and tourists alike, to provide an experience in our town, to serve as a catalyst to promote St George and generate more excitement in our nightlife.”
Courtney Trott, town administrator for the Corporation of St George, said the popular fixture had ended when regular calls from the Norwegian Majesty cruise ship stopped in 2009.
Mr Trott added: “Businesses are coming on board. They all see tremendous opportunity in bringing this back to the town.”
All are welcome to come out and enjoy the festivities on King's Square. It will be fun for the entire family.
