Guam - "Celebrating the Tastes of Micronesia" is the theme of this year's Micronesian Island Fair.  The three-day event will kick off next weekend. Visitors can expect to see exhibits, presentations, and performances from throughout the region with an emphasis on Micronesian food traditions. 

During a press conference today, Guam Visitors Bureau general manager Ernie Galito announced that this year the fair will open early on Friday to accommodate some special visitors.  He told KUAM News, "The school children of Guam, we want to make it available so they can make it a field day trip so we're please to announce that, through a series of presentations with DOE principals and a series of correspondences that we have pretty close to 3,000 school children who will be attending the Guam Micronesia Island Fair."

The fair starts on October 15 at 9am and will run through Sunday evening.
