Bermuda Carnival’s Parade of Bands last year. The carnival has been cancelled because of the Covid-19 panedemic.

Bermuda Carnival events will not go ahead, the organisation behind the four-day party said yesterday.

BHW Ltd explained it “must make decisions that are best for everyone” as Bermuda and the world battled Covid-19.

The organisers added: “Rest assured, as soon as a clearer picture of our status has emerged, we will announce a date when we can safely and securely celebrate Bermuda Carnival again.

“When that day arrives, those of you who have already purchased tickets for our events, will already be set, since your purchases will still be valid for those corresponding upcoming events.”

The celebrations had been scheduled to take place from June 12 to 15.

The Bermuda Carnival website said that events this year were to include Five Star Friday, featuring local performing artists as well as international soca artists and DJs, a raft-up in Shelly Bay, the colourful early morning J’Ouvert paint party, and the Parade of Bands.

The organisation said that Covid-19 was “one of the greatest challenges humanity has ever encountered”.

It added: “We pray and hope that you and your loved ones are staying safe and taking the best care possible of yourselves.

“As a team, we are looking forward to the day when this pandemic will end and life as we know it can flow forward once more.

“In fact, the full BHW Ltd team is focused on that future and working towards it as best we can.”

The organisation thanked the island’s essential workers for “rising every single day, working long shifts without fail,

facing a dangerous foe, by laying their lives on the line and demonstrating to us all the true personification of heroism”.

It also thanked its committee members, volunteers, bands and sponsors who had worked “tirelessly” to help make the annual event possible.
