With only a month until the event, Guam Visitors Bureau General Manager Nate Denight says this donation of huts really helps out with preparation for the big event.

Guam – Ever drove by Paseo and wondered what those steel huts will be used for? Well, you’re looking at what’s going to be the Festival of the Pacific Arts Black Construction Vendor Village.

 

Black Construction has signed on as a sponsor for Fest Pac. As a sponsor, Black Construction built about 40 steel huts with nipa leaf roofing for the Fest Pac vendor village, which costs about $160-thousand dollars for the project. 

Black Construction General Manager Leonard Kaae says the hut’s steel frame provides a strong foundation and will be covered with bamboo sticks to give the hut a more cultural look. Kaae explains, “Our participation on this program stems 58 years ago when Black first originally came to Guam and we felt compelled to provide assistance to this inaguaral event to Guam, the Fest Pac. I think it’s a collaborative effort between Black and our business partners that have provided necessary materials for us to make this happen and make this a reality.”

With only a month until the event, Guam Visitors Bureau General Manager Nate Denight says this donation of huts really helps out with preparation for the big event.

Fest Pac Planning Committee member Mark Mendiola says the vendor village will consist of food vendors, off-island craft vendors, and artisans that will sell Made in Guam products.

  1. Those huts are UGLY! I didn’t know that the ancient Chamorros had access to steel? At least try and cover up the metal parts for Christ’s sake!
