Heather Nova, the star act at the Greenrock music festival, wowed the crowd of about 1,000 people for more than an hour.

People cheered, danced, clapped and sang along as the Bermudian-born entertainer sang and played the guitar.

The crowd, which included many families, didn't let the blustery weather or threat of showers spoil their fun.

They partied all afternoon and into the evening to music acts including Geoffrey Oryema, from Uganda, Fiona Pears from New Zealand and Bermudians Olybhosh (the Chewstick band) and Joy Barnum.

The crowd also enjoyed picnics on the Arboretum's grass with a variety of food and drink on sale from vendors.

They learnt all products being used were eco-friendly and happily separated plates, bottles and plastic for recycling.

Greener Bermuda

The aim of the event was to create a greener Bermuda by encouraging individuals to do their part in making Bermuda socially, economically and environmentally sustainable for future generations.

Greenrock - which hopes individuals will make a difference and create the 'ripple effect' - also showcased environmentally friendly products such as electric scooters, home wind turbines and dehumidifying water coolers.
