IT’S going to be quite a packed-out one this weekend, with events to carry you straight through from Friday to Sunday, as you look to kick back and unwind before the Monday labour begins.
From fashion shows to jump-up-and-throw- down sessions, to pageants, it’s the kind of weekend that encourages you to get out!
Two Guyanese singers have launches this weekend! Timeka Marshall’s video launch will cater to the soca-inclined, while Saiku’s launch over at the National Park on Saturday is all about that gospel vibe! Whichever one you go out to, go out and help support your own Guyanese talent!
Speaking of supporting Guyanese, you could check out the Miss India Guyana Pageant on tonight at the Mariott Hotel and go cheer on your pick to be Guyana’s next queen!
Over at Herdmanston Lodge tomorrow, it’s going to be an elegant evening with great comedy, or if you’re more looking to throw down this Saturday, Palm Court is having a multi-genre party, and soca and dancehall are at the top of the menu.
Then on Sunday, the Rotaract Club is hosting a fundraiser, and it involves a lot of food! 592Dresses is also having a fashion show, while DJ Marvelous is celebrating his birthday, and it’s happening at Club Monaco.
