Easter paradise – Kara Kara Blue Lake

DPI, Guyana, Tuesday, April 23, 2019

Lindeners did not have to travel to any Caribbean island to enjoy a beach-like experience this Easter Monday as the Kara Kara Blue Lake proved to be their own little sun and sand paradise.

The Kara Kara Blue Lake, a tourism hotspot for Linden, was packed to capacity and buzzing with activities on Monday. Previously, the popular Easter Monday spot for Lindeners was the Bayroc Community Centre Ground but with the construction of a synthetic athletic track ongoing, residents flocked to the famous Blue Lake.

The Kara Kara Blue Lake is increasingly popular on weekends, holidays and for special occasions such as weddings, birthday and other celebrations.

On Monday, the blue skies above the lake were decorated with scores of kites flown by children and parents alike. Pulsating music added to the party mood. For beverage sellers, it was about making a few dollars while also enjoying the vibes. Other activities included jet skiing, kayaking and boat rowing. “I am just enjoying the vibes, the scenery. We have nice weather, we brought our food and all in all it is a good day,” said Patronella who took her three children to the lake.

Other kite-flying venues around Linden included the outskirts of Bayroc, the Mackenzie Dyke, Richmond Hill, the Mackenzie Sports Club Ground and other open spaces.
