Thursday, 26 August, 2021 is officially a public holiday in commemoration of the late Sir Lester Bryant Bird, who passed away peacefully at the age of 83 on 9 August, 2021.

The twin-island state of Antigua and Barbuda will pause to pay its respect and celebrate the life of the national hero and former Prime Minister on Thursday. The remembrance service starts at 10 a.m. at the Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Stadium. You can watch the proceedings live on television or stream online with Antigua/Barbuda Broadcasting Services (ABS) via www.facebook.com/abstvradio.

While the beaches are off-limits, there are many great ways to spend the day, in honour of the outstanding sportsman, lawyer and parliamentarian. From sightseeing to soaking in the sunset, while still keeping your distance in accordance with coronavirus restrictions.

Immerse yourself in the spectacular scenery as you walk through the beautiful landscapes, as well as observe Antigua and Barbuda's flora and fauna along one of these amazing hiking trails. Explore the island's beauty from the comfort of a state-of-the-art aircraft with CalvinAir Helicopters. Take in some of the most popular cultural places of interest, from Devil's Bridge to Betty's Hope on a 4x4 Island Safari tour.

Enjoy exceptional hospitality and sample some of the finest cuisines on the island in a stylish accommodation set in a magnificent location. Tantalize your taste buds with mouthwatering dishes and desserts and a few drinks at your favourite restaurant.

For pure relaxation, book the best massages. A heavenly spa or in-home massage is the perfect way to wind down after a fun-filled day of hiking, touring, dining out, or just relaxing by the pool on a Day Pass, as you watch the sun disappears beyond the horizon.

No matter how you choose to celebrate, have a safe day and stay healthy!
