The National Cultural Foundation (NCF) has slashed the cost of stalls for vendors at some Crop Over events and given free spaces to those disadvantaged by the new Grand Kadooment route.

Chief executive officer (CEO) of the NCF, Carol Roberts-Reifer, revealed this yesterday on Starcom Network’s Fireworks radio programme.

She said stall spaces go on sale from Monday for Pandemonium (National Botanical Gardens), Grand Kadooment (ABC Highway to National Stadium), Junior Monarch (Garfield Sobers Sports Complex), Pic-O-De-Crop Finals and Soka Rukshun (both at Kensington Oval).

“Vendors have two options for Grand Kadooment based on talks with bandleaders, police and our support service groups. You can either go on the highway where we have identified lots of areas that go both as lookout points and those for vending, or you can vend in a select area in the Botanical Gardens,” she explained. (NS)
