Bermuda offers a good variety of events throughout the year. The good news is that most of them are free, or very cheap, to attend.
Throughout the summer there’s a plethora of events that will appeal to tourists. The season starts at the end of May with Bermuda Day, a national holiday celebrated with a colourful parade, a half-marathon, and dinghy races.
