THE new location of the flood-devastated sub-district headquarter of Mumeng , which is at the Zenag chicken farm land area in Bulolo district, will be the centre of attraction when the six local level governments (LLG) in the district will stage a cultural show during the Independence weekend next month.
A committee has been set in place to organise the show which is expected to lure cultural groups from as far as Waria LLG and the neighboring Menyamya district, who will be participating to show their culture.
The Buang yam culture will be one of several other cultures from the district that will be exhibited. Traditional string bands without the use of musical instruments like the factory -amde guitars and ukuleles, should astonish everyone.
On the commercial side of things, one of the highlights, if all goes well, will be a cross country motor cycle jaunt that will see riders taking off from Lae through the unattended short cut road to Buang from the turn off at Gabensis village.
Organising committee chairman, Stanley Komuts, says companies operating within the district as well as Lae, have been given the opportunity to display their products if they so wish.
Komuts said the formal Independence activities will held on Independence Day , which is Friday , September 16 while Saturday and Sunday will be occupied with cultural show exhibitions and the presentation on Sunday afternoon.
He said gates will be free of charge and every cultural group, string bands and singsing groups will be rewarded for taking part.
The Bulolo cultural show, if successful, will become an annual event in the district in the years to come.
