Guam - The 27th Annual Guam Micronesia Island Fair kicks off tomorrow. All week long we've highlighted vendors and entertainment and tonight, we take a look at what CAHA has in store for us.

The Guam Council on the Arts and Humanities Agency is a government agency that plays a vital role on the island. Program coordinator Jackie Balbas said, "Our role is to bring the arts and supports."

CAHA will be in full force at the Guam Micronesia Island Fair hoping to increase artist participation. According to Balbas, there are about 34 members and vendors under CAHA that will be participating at this year's fair. "That includes visual artists, and people who make jewelry and other materials," she said.

And Balbas is excited because this year, they will be introducing an interactive arts booth. "It's actually going to be art sessions, and other exhibits, including a coloring station," she added.

Balbas has been with CAHA for 26 years and says although the council participates in several events and projects throughout the year, The Guam Micronesia Island Fair is one she always looks forward to. "It's an opportunity not only locals to come out and showcase," she said.

So clear your weekend and make it a point to stop by the 27th annual GMIF. Balbas said, "It's very family oriented...there's lots of activities and you'll just have a good time."

Again, the 27th Guam Micronesia Island Fair takes place from Friday, April 25th to Sunday, April 27th at the Governor Joseph Flores Park. It is quite an event, so we definitely hope to see you there!
