WITH Easter being tomorrow, kite makers on the Essequibo Coast are cashing in on the little business brought on by the Easter season.
On a visit to the Anna Regina Market, Region Two, many kite makers were making full use of the season.

One kite maker, Vijay Singh, said he looks forward to the season to earn an extra income. He was retailing kites at $500 and $1000.
“Come get your colourful kites, fly them as high as you want,” were the words of another kite maker, Miguel Singh, who was selling his kites for $300, $500 and $1000.
Buyers were very receptive and the sales were increasing as children entered the market.
