Christmas Boat Parade Postponed

Hamilton – 9 November 2017 

 The City of Hamilton announced today that the Christmas Boat Parade, scheduled for Saturday December 9th, has been postponed until December 2018. 

“This was always going to be a difficult transitional year for the Christmas Boat Parade”, explained Mayor Charles Gosling. “We agreed to take over from the founders who had organised the parade for the past 20 years because we believe we can grow this into a major event for the City and for tourism on the Island. The Corporation and the founders have been working together and we regret postponing this year’s parade, but there are several issues beyond our control that will impact the overall event quality if we were to proceed this December. One of those issues is the low number of participants who have registered to enter the parade. The other is that the company who provide the fireworks display for the boat parade and many other local events, are no longer offering this service, and we didn’t feel the parade could proceed without the magnificent fireworks finale we have come to enjoy over the years. We will now regroup and double our efforts to address these issues and come back next year with a bigger and better parade”. 


“We wish to thank the companies who so generously provide sponsorship funds and also to those boat owners who did sign up for this year’s parade. We want to assure them, as well as the public, that we are committed to delivering a first-class event in 2018.  I hope our many Christmas Boat Parade fans can be patient and I urge all boat owners to plan to participate in 2018”.

                                           Request For Proposals - City Arts Festival

        Hamilton, Bermuda – Wednesday 25th January, 2017     

Over the past two years the City Arts Festival has focused on beautifying various areas in the City in a concerted effort to live up to the mandate of being a ‘vibrant’ City. As many as 9 new installations have added colour, culture and beauty to the streets and parks of Hamilton.

For 2017, the City Arts Festival has partnered with Washington Properties and identified Washington Lane as in major need of improvement. To that end, a Request For Proposals begins tomorrow for artists to submit their installation ideas for Washington Lane, only. The deadline for submissions is Monday, February 13th, 2017. Tender packages outlining the guidelines and requirements can be collected from the Corporation of Hamilton offices in City Hall or downloaded from the City’s website – www.cityofhamilton.bm . Any queries or questions can be directed to 292-1234, ext. 278 or via email at events@cityhall.bm

Mayor Charles Gosling states, ‘The City is truly delighted to partner with Washington Properties on this most important initiative as we continue to nourish visual artistic opportunities around the City. Last year Chancery Lane had a much appreciated facelift and with the banner year ahead of us, it thrills me to think that one of our most highly used pedestrian thoroughfares in the City, Washington Lane, will receive the very much needed attention it deserves. This will not only beautify the lane throughout but will also create a safer and more secure passage for all.’ 

Washington Properties (Bermuda) Limited General Manager, Paul Slaughter, added, ‘Washington Properties is pleased to partner with the Corporation of Hamilton and neighbouring property owners in bringing the City Arts Initiative to Washington Lane.  This will surely create a more attractive environment for both visitors and the local community.’

City Hall Car Park rates - starting Monday August 21, 2016
Click the link for more details.

The rates for parking will be $2.00 per hour for a maximum of 3 hours at City Hall Car Park. Extra tariff charges apply after the 3-hour maximum limit, to discourage motorists from overstaying the limit.
If a motorist exceeds the 3 hour limit, ordinarily they would receive a parking ticket. In this case as the car park barrier system does not require ticketing for overstays, the motorist is charged an additional $10, taking the total to $16.00 for up to 4 hours and past 4 hours is an additional $65 tariff.
It is the City's hope that this car park be used as intended, for stays up to 3 hours and that the higher tariffs will serve as an incentive to do so. Motorists who stay within the 3 hour limit are not impacted in any way by the higher tariffs.

Please note EasyPark integration is not yet complete. Payment is accepted in CASH (coins and bills) and CARDS (Mastercard and VISA credit and debit cards).
