Bermuda Island Beach Parties
It has now introduced Island Beach Parties in Snorkel Park Beach at the dockyard. So cruise ship visitors docking here and others now have an option of nighttime entertainment with families and kids.
It's an all inclusive beach party package with sunset barbecue buffet dinner, drinks, live music and dance performances.
Years back, there used to be Hawkins Island Party held in Bermuda. It used to be a very interactive beach party, a high energy event with games, contests, limbo show, fire performances, conga lines and many other entertainment. Something which the whole family could enjoy.
Since that had stopped, there was a strong feeling in the tourism department and within the people of Bermuda that the island has become too laid back for the tourists. The visitors come here with lot more expectations, particularly when it comes to nighttime entertainment.
Dave Parquet, who is in charge of this beach venue at the dockyard, has been flown in from the USA to shake up the party scene in Bermuda. He has a strong background in high-energy tourist entertainment including casino and karaoke bars.
Dave worked in Las Vegas in the early 90s as an entertainment director for United Gaming Incorporated which owns casinos bars. He then moved to Cancun, Mexico where he was entertainment director for Senior Frogs, a series of some 50 beach bars.
So you know what you can expect out of the Island Beach Parties in Bermuda when Dave is structuring and leading the entire entertainment.
The program begins with the live Steel Pan and other bands playing music as the guests take their dinner.
Soon the party starts with a conga line. The adults are offered rum swizzle - a special island drink. It’s a mix of amber and black rum, triple sec, orange & pineapple juices, and bitters.
I found Rum Swizzle fairly strong, but have seen some islanders taking jugs full of this drink in one of the pubs :)
There will be dance competitions like Funky White Boy where even men take a shot at dancing. There are other events like the Think Drink competitions, singing contests, congo lines, limbo dancing and such. DJs Robby G and OB1 keep playing a mix of top 40, classic tunes, soca, reggae and calypso music throughout the party.
Finally you will see a fire limbo show by Bermuda’s own Island Teazas. There will also be performances from dancers of United Dance Productions. Dave hosts the parties and even sings a few songs himself.
