of town on St John's Road. The Bermuda Music

Events in Bermuda are not always festivals. If you miss the Bermuda Music Festivals, you can often catch a live music show on any given night, especially during the summer months. Reggae and calypso bands are known to strike up beach parties that go long into the night, and you can always try to catch a live act at a pub or concert venue. Sports events in Bermuda are ideal for sports fanatics, especially those who like cricket or soccer. The Bermuda Hogges soccer team might be in the USL second division, but that doesn't mean that their games aren't exciting. Events in Bermuda can be as enjoyable as you want them to be, especially when you keep an open mind. Most Americans may know nothing about cricket, for example, but catching a game can be an enjoyable experience nonetheless, even if you are somewhat clueless throughout. Chances are good that someone in the crowd will key you in on what's going on.
Bermuda vacations are all about having fun, and the numerous Bermuda festivals and events can help you have a blast.
