SRP car­ni­val opens to­day

The Freeman - - NEWS - O. Leyson/KBQ — Odessa

The amuse­ment park at the South Road Prop­er­ties (SRP) in Cebu City will of­fi­cially open to­day, De­cem­ber 8.

The park dubbed as “Boom na Boom sa Sugbo,” for­merly known as Kasadya sa SRP, sits on a prop­erty along IL Corso.

It fea­tures over 30 modern recre­ational rides and ameni­ties, which will be avail­able to the pub­lic from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. start­ing to­day. Each ride amounts to P30 to P50.

The en­trance fee of the car­ni­val ranges from P20 on week­days and P25 on week­ends and hol­i­days, in­clud­ing Christ­mas Day.

It will run un­til Fe­bru­ary next year.

Coun­cilor David Tu­mu­lak, chair­per­son of the City Coun­cil’s com­mit­tee on pub­lic or­der and safety and deputy mayor for po­lice mat­ters, said RSF firm, the op­er­a­tor of the car­ni­val, is rent­ing out the prop­erty from a big-ticket firm.

The an­nual car­ni­val had been held at the SRP Sugbo grounds, but not this year.

Tu­mu­lak said the prop­erty was al­ready pur­chased by a firm for an P18-bil­lion casino and ho­tel project.

He said the city gov­ern­ment will col­lect amuse­ment tax, which is 30 per­cent of to­tal in­come, from RSF.

On the other hand, he said the city gov­ern­ment will pro­vide buses to ferry pas­sen­gers to SRP for free.

He said though the num­ber of Kaoh­si­ung buses to be de­ployed will still be fi­nal­ized.
