|Description||Accommodation and transportation arrangements are almost in place for CARIFESTA as the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sport along with the Ministry of Tourism continues to prepare to host the mega event.Fifty hotels around the country have been certified and 3,000 rooms already secured.Speaking with Kaieteur News yesterday, Minister of Tourism, Manniram Prashad said that 573 of the expected 1,500 delegates have already booked their own accommodation. He added that this was mainly facilitated through online advertisement.According to the Minister, this shows that delegates are interested in organizing themselves even before they arrive in Guyana.At present, the Minister said, the Bed and Breakfast programme is being reactivated.¡°If everything continues as it is going we will find that we will need other areas for accommodation¡some of the hotels may be forced to install double beds¡and we are thinking about accommodating people in places like Cyril Potter College of Education and YMCA,¡± Minister Prashad said.Local participants coming from out of town, he said, will be accommodated in various locations.Minister Prashad noted that the Bed and Breakfast accommodations that have been made available already can accommodate at least 100 persons.¡°We are hoping to carry that much higher but that would be dependent on the response we get. We have people in the fields assisting to reactivate the Bed and Breakfast programme in full.¡±During Cricket World Cup 2007, there were nearly 2000 rooms available but many of these were not used because of the lack of attendance at the event.¡°Some of the top teams got knocked out of the game so the big crowds did not come and many local persons were disappointed because they would have prepared their places,Cheap NFL Jerseys China,¡± the Minister said.He added that for CARIFESTA, interested persons have been approaching the Ministry following several advertisements for the Bed and Breakfast programme.Hotels, Prashad said, have already begun advertising special packages for the event.Some hotels, he said, went the extra mile and have included in their room rate, breakfast.¡°The accommodation aspect is going good generally but we are hoping that a lot of people do not wait for the last minute. We are a bit worried about that,¡± Prashad said.Speaking about travel arrangements and airlines facilities, the Minister said that two new airlines will commence flights to Guyana.Delta, he said, will begin on June 1, while Sky Service from Toronto, will have flights coming to Guyana from July 1.As it is at present, he said, it is very difficult to get flights coming to Guyana.Travelspan will be using North American planes as they recommence their two flights per week from June 28.Minister Prashad added that all the airlines will be approached to increase the number of flights to Guyana.Hosted under the theme: ¡®One Caribbean, One purpose, Our Culture, Our Life¡¯, the tenth staging of CARIFESTA will boast an impressive lineup of activities, including the opening and closing ceremonies, culinary, visual, literary and performing arts, community festivals, grand cultural markets, child/youth fora, symposia and workshops as well as signal events and super concerts.The Festival is returning to Guyana after 35 years, the first being in 1972, when CARIFESTA was born.|
