In Region Two…Regional Administration preparing to welcome CARIFESTA X visitors
THE Regional Administration in Region Two (Pomeroon/Supenaam) is busy with preparations, especially in the town of Anna Regina, for the tenth Caribbean Festival of Creative Arts (CARIFESTA X).
A release said work is in progress on the Anna Regina Community Centre ground where a grand super concert will be staged on August 23.
According to Vice-Chairman, Mr. Vishnu Samaroo, a massive platform is under construction and an Amerindian village will be created for the indigenous folks from the nine communities across the region to display their craft, foods, local drink and art pieces.
The release said the Administration is also to establish an art gallery, at Anna Regina Town Hall where several pieces, done many years ago, will be displayed, together with others crafted by schoolchildren.
A brochure on the region, that is being produced by the Information Department, will be distributed free of charge to all visitors during CARIFESTA X activities.
With the aim of making the region glitter for the occasion, the Administration is encouraging residents to clean up their yards and repaint fences to make visitors feel welcome to the ‘Cinderella County’, the release said.
