Visitors to the Guyana Festival slated for August 8 to 10, are in for another first time experience as Air Services Ltd will be on hand to offer helicopter rides.
Patrons will be able to have a bird’s eye view of the city from 12:00hrs to 18:00hrs each day during a 15 minute ride on the helicopter.
The fare is $9,000 per person with discounts for families and school children.
A helipad has already been set up to the left of the main entrance and check- in facilities identified. The event is being held at the Guyana National Stadium at Providence.
The multi-million dollar inaugural Guyana Festival is slated to kick off soon.
The Guyana Tourism Authority (GTA) has promised a memorable cultural extravaganza for attendees to the inaugural event.
The Ministry of Tourism is anticipating that thousands will converge at the venue to indulge in the treats available. The atmosphere will be transformed into a cultural spectacle.
“For the very first time, the fusion of the six different cultures that make up the Guyanese tapestry will be brought together, reflecting a true melting pot that reflects the Guyanese identity,” the GTA noted.
The agency also expressed, “Guyana is known the world over for its warmth and the hospitality of its people, and it is also recognized that the underlying beauty in the destination is reflected in the people and the depictions of their cultural differences; now for the very first time the opportunity to shine is here, the Guyana Festival…reflecting what it means to be truly Guyanese.”
The ‘Guyana Festival-Sound, Soul and Taste’, is aimed at showcasing the country’s varied culture, exploring both new and old talents, and promoting what the country has to offer through a mixture of traditional music and dance, along with the exhibition of local food, art and craft.
