Calls for support

Shayal Devi

THE Ba Riverside Carnival will coincide with the launch of the 2014 Divisional Agriculture Show and Duavata Initiative.

Ba special administrator Praveen Bala said preparations were progressing well for the event next month.

"I am very happy the business community has come forward and sponsored the contestants," he said.

"We have three major categories this year — queens, kings and princesses."

Mr Bala urged people to come out in numbers to support the carnival and the contestants.

"Stalls are selling at reasonable prices as well and the reason for this is that we want people to be able to take something back at the end of the festival."

The carnival will feature nine queen contestants, seven princesses and six kings.
