HALLOWEEN FRIGHT FEST - GUYANESE FOLKLORE FESTIVAL

Written by  Thursday, 19 October 2017 00:00
Halloween Fright Fest - the Beginning 
 
Earlier this year, the promoters of the annual Yankee All White Boat Cruise got together with Gtmemoirs and came up with a new and exciting way to get Guyanese Folklore back into the hearts of Guyanese and specifically to pioneer a concept which would lead to heightened awareness of Guyanese culture among the young generation.
 
From October 23rd to 27th we aim to host a Festival which would command national attention, be attractive to families and give back to the community.
 
Students with their guardians are invited to come walk through our edutainment Fright Maze and learn about the many - Scary - Jumbies found in Guyanese Folklore from 3pm to 8pm daily.
 
They can have their faces painted with their favourite Jumbie by Bravo Arts and have the satisfaction of knowing that they are supporting a good cause since the proceeds from the Halloween Fright Fest will be going to the Prevention of Teenage Suicide (POTS) Guyana. 
 
Many have lost interest in Guyanese Folklore and have gravitated towards western myths and legends. 
 
The Halloween Fright Fest is our way of working towards renewing the image of our folklore in your minds eye. 
 
Halloween Fright Fest has two (2) main objectives. One, to provide a platform to showcase Guyanese Folklore to a broad cross-section of Guyanese and the other, to bring Guyanese Creatives together to provide edutainment, economic and social responsibility opportunities. 
 
The festival is sponsored by Sueria Manufacturing Inc., Azzie Biko Clothing and Leon Gilegous, Carol Wills and Wonda Grant.
