Best Summer Trips 2015
Cup Match is Bermuda’s equivalent of the Super Bowl. The main event (July 29 to August 2) pits the island’s two cricket teams—St. George’s and Somerset—against each other and sparks a multiday, islandwide celebration. Cup Match Summer Splash events include BeachFest on Horseshoe Bay Beach, July 31, and the Non-Mariners Race (a zany spectacle with patchwork “vessels”), August 2. The cricket competition—hosted by St. George’s Cricket Club this year—is part of the island’s two-day national holiday commemorating Bermuda’s colonization and the end of slavery.
