The Christmas season has arrived and the City of Georgetown is already celebrating with a lot of gusto.
The Christmas Village is a yearly event organized by the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sport and it is set to run until December 19th. The village offers a variety of activities for families and friends including photo booths, face painting, games for children and adults alike, live music performances from local bands, food vendors offering traditional Guyanese foods such as rice & peas and rum punch along with other treats like ice cream cones or hot dogs!
Last evening, hundreds of families and friends walked the length of the Main Street Avenue last evening to enjoy the music, photo booths, and many vendors who displayed their merchandise and offered their products and services for sale.
Christmas is a time of major celebrations as Guyanese embrace this particular holiday with much enthusiasm. President Ali, Minister of Culture Youth & Sports, Charles Ramson, Ms. Jane Miller, the British High Commissioner and Minister Oneidge Waldron, Minister of Tourism, Industry and Commerce were some of the dignitaries who walked the length of the avenue to support the vendors and to enjoy the happenings.
