The PyinOoLwin Tazaungdine hot-air balloon festival (Tazaungdine) will be resumed this year, according to the festival organizing committee.
The festival has been planned to be held in the hot-air balloon field near Maha Arnthtoo Kantha Hsutaungpyae Pagoda in PyinOoLwin from 4 to 8 November 2022.
The festival organizing committee invited tenders from interested businesspersons for operating theatrical show, funfairs, advertising measures, vendor shops, water and electricity supply, latrines and six parking lots by 5 October for the festival.
It has been announced that the trustees board will sell tender forms at K10,000 per copy not later than 5 October and the tender selection will be held at 10 am on 6 October at the Maha Arnthtoo Kantha Hsutaungpyae Pagoda Trustee’s Office.
The last PyinOoLwin Tazaungdine Festival was held in 2019, but it was unable to be held in 2020 and 2021, and preparations are being made to hold it again in 2022.
The tender fees for the festival were set as K35 million for theatrical, funfairs, advertising and vendor shops, K10 million for water and power supply and latrines, and K45 million for six parking lots.—TWA/GNLM
