Vybz Entertainment Incorporated, in association with the Linden Mayor and Town Council (M&TC), will be hosting yet another year of signature events for Linden Town Week between May 15 and May 25, 2016.
The Town Week is an annual celebration of Linden’s birth and this year it celebrates 46 years. It has been shifted to the period of Guyana’s 50th Independence celebration.
2016 marks a significant year for the mining town – 20 years of Linden Town Week celebrations and 100 years of bauxite mining, both of which have contributed to the socioeconomic development of the town.
With that said, this year, the scale of economic stimulation, marketing, advertising and product sales is forecast to double owing to the large influx of visitors, both overseas-based and local.
It is on this basis the organising body has collaborated with major sponsors and stakeholders to launch Linden Town Week 2016 on March 19 at the Linden-Georgetown Park starting at 16:00h.
At this event, there will be remarks by Vybz Entertainment Inc Chairman Devin Sears; Region 10 Upper Demerara-Berbice) Democratic Council (RDC) representatives; Linden M&TC representatives and Government officials, accompanied by the release of the Linden Town Week Jingle, theme and cultural events. The launch will last into the night and will feature a press briefing, ceremony, ‘mingle and entertainment’ and stage performances and fete.
