Bermuda's Premier, David Burt, has announced that Monday, November 4, 2019, “will be declared a public holiday to mark the 170th anniversary of the arrival of the first Portuguese immigrants in Bermuda".
The aforementioned announcement ("I am pleased to advise this Honourable House and the public that with the approval of the Cabinet I have confirmed with the Governor that he will, by proclamation, declare 4th November 2019 a public holiday to mark this 170th Anniversary of the arrival of the first Portuguese immigrants in Bermuda. This early announcement of the public holiday to commemorate the 170th anniversary of the arrival of the first Portuguese immigrants will permit the development of a series of events connected with the observance.") thus amends the revised list of public holidays in Bermuda for the years 2018-2019-2020-2021, as initially announced 2 years ago (2016-10-31) and later amended (2017-12-24)
