Every Wednesday night in summer Front Street hosts a free street festival featuring Bermudian artists, crafts, Gombey dancers, and face painting. Harbour Nights encompasses most of Hamilton: Front Street and Queen Street are closed to traffic, stores stay open later, and throngs of locals and visitors alike sample local art stalls, bouncy castles and rides, food vendors, and live music. It's a great time to try local cuisine like fish cakes, fresh fish, fried chicken, meat pies, and Portuguese deep-fried doughnuts. Make dinner reservations at a restaurant with a balcony overlooking Front Street for a bird's-eye view of the action (Red Steakhouse & Bar and The Pickled Onion are very popular).
