Guam - The Mayor's Council of Guam considers this week's soft opening of the Liberation Carnival as a rehearsal of sorts to test equipment and other areas. But according to carnival chairperson Mayor Paul McDonald, you should expect more games, rides, food vendors and entertainment when the carnival holds it official opening ceremonies this weekend.

As for the casino, he says it's better located away from the softball field but like last year will run 24 hours a day. "We've always had it 24 hours that's because it would be more attractive for vendors to bid on the casino where we can make some money to divvy up with the 19 districts and of course the First Lady's group," he explained.

He adds the casino will be the only area selling alcohol which can only be consumed in the enclosed premises of the facility in order to comply with regulations. Entertainment chairman Mayor Robert Hoffman meanwhile confirms that San Diego-based reggae group Tribal Theory will perform this Sunday whereas Hawaiian artist Baba-B will perform on July 4.
