THE NUMBER of patrons attending Pan Pun De Sand continues to increase yearly but there are no plans to change the venue for the event.
Yesterday at the launch of this year’s Neal & Massy Pan Pun De Sand, chief executive officer of the National Cultural Foundation (NCF), Cranston Browne, said the Barbados Tourism Authority (BTA) had been marketing it throughout the Caribbean and even further afield as Pan Weekend, a sort of festival within the Crop Over festival.
“Packaging it that way has worked and the bookings for Crop Over are very high . . . . I think the BTA has asked about some airlines putting on some extra flights,” he said.
Browne said the event had attracted audiences of 12 000 in the last six years.
However, he said although other sites had been looked at over the years a change from the Brandons Beach location was not likely, since the site remained, logistically, the most suitable since the others did not have adequate access roads or a wide enough open beach similar to Brandons Beach. (LK)
