Guam - Vendor/ Concession applications are now available for the 2014 Guam Island Fair/ Liberation Carnival. According to a media release from the Guam Liberation Historical Society applications are available at the Sinajana Mayor's Office from 9:00am to 4:00pm. Applications will be available up until Wednesday, April 16th.
Concession Chairperson Agana Heights Mayor Paul McDonald says "this year is going to be even better.. ever since the Mayors' Council and the Guam Liberation Historical Society took over the Carnival we have received very positive feedback year after year. We take the suggestions of our families and vendors and strive to improve the product. The quality is getting better, attendees feel safer, it is clearner and everyone is enjoying their experience."
McDonald adds "with this being the 70th year celebration we are looking to host events at a larger scale so the Guam Liberation Historical Society will be hosting and operating some concessions in-house (Casino, Games of Chance and the Drink Booths) to fully capitalize and maximize on revenue generation." He added when all is done they are hoping to capture greater revenue and donate more to the Mayors Council of Guam and the First Lady's charities.
The Carnival is scheduled to have a dry run/ soft opening on Monday, May 19th. The official opening is scheduled for Saturday, May 24th at 6:00pm.
The Legislative Ethics Committee has dismissed the complaint against Senator Fernando Esteves, and says it considers the matter closed.
