There will also be a variety of rides and games offered at the fun fair during the course of the festival. Tickets for the rides will be sold at the festival. For those with an uncurable sense of wanderlust, Computicket Travel is running a competition where Lusito Land patrons are offered the opportunity to win an MSC Cruise to the Portuguese Islands and flights to Portugal through TAAG.
“Festival attendees that purchase their tickets for the Lusito Land Festival through Computicket will be automatically entered into the draw,” Aquino says.
The Lusito Land Festival is the sole fund-raising activity for the Lusito School for mentally and physically challenged children. The school currently assists 85 students from all walks of life, helping them get the education and support they so desperately need. Due to the weather forcing the festival to close its doors for Monday, 22 April, Lusito Land will no longer be making their financial fundraising targets this year for the school.
“While attending the festival is lots of fun for the whole family, we do it for a greater cause andthat’s to raise funds for the school. We’d like to encourage everyone to come through thisweekend and join us, so we can get as close to our target as possible for the children, plusyou’ll be having a great day out with the whole family,” concludes Aquino.
