Hilton Barbados Resort is making it easier for Barbadians to enjoy its traditional Old Year’s Night fireworks display by making a location change.
The display, a big hit with Barbadians over the years, will now fire off from the Carlisle Bay side of the property, facing Bridgetown, to cover a wider area and enhance visibility from all angles.
Director of business development Josea Browne explained that this year’s display would be even bigger and better: “We know our fireworks display is a major attraction for our guests, as well as Barbadians in general, and this year we are making it even more spectacular.
“So from Trevor’s Way in Bridgetown right up nearby Pebbles Beach, Barbadians now have even more vantage points to welcome in the New Year while viewing the most extraordinary fireworks show on the island at midnight.”
She added that this was just one of the changes being made to the resort’s holiday season’s calendar of events this year, including what she said were improvements to “some traditional activities”.
Hilton Barbados will host an Old Year’s Night Auld Lang Syne Party at its Charles Fort, and introduce a Christmas Jazz Breakfast at The Grille from 7:30 a.m. till 11 a.m. tomorrow, December 25, along with Breakfast Jazz in the adjoining Careenage Bar.
Another new activity at Hilton Barbados Resort this year will be its Boxing Day Do Over, where the hotel will host a special Christmas lunch, and a Gospel Brunch on New Year’s Day from 10 a.m. till 1:30 p.m., featuring local gospel talent, including the likes of Sister Marshall and Promise, along with a sumptuous Hilton fare, “as the perfect way to ring in the New Year with ministry”.
Brown said the Hilton would yet be having its customary Boxing Day lunch, Old Year’s Night dinner, an Old Year’s Night Staycation and a New Year’s Day lunch.
