MASHRAMANI 2018 has exceeded the expectations of its organisers and Guyanese, Director of Culture (ag), Tamika Boatswain has said.
“I believe Mashramani was a huge success… it exceeded our expectations, especially with the talk about the change in route,” Boatswain said during a telephone interview with the Guyana Chronicle on Sunday.
Floats made their way from Thomas Lands and Camp Street, then turned onto Vlissingen Road and straight to D’Urban Park during the parade. There were thousands of people at every section of the route, including the park.
The organisers believed that the crowd was blown away by the floats, especially since most of the spectators said it was the best Mashramani in years.
“We were pleased with the outcome and the cleaning up after… the turnout at D’Urban Park also exceeded our expectations, because everything was good and there were positive vibes,” said the elated Boatswain.
