Red Panda Winter Festival is all set to be celebrated in Gangtok, Sikkim this December with much fanfare. The festival brings out the best of culture, tradition, food, fun, music and more in a glamorous way.
The meeting was chaired by the Secretary, Mr C. Zangpo. A working committee was set up among the department officers and staff for which, the Special Secretary, Mr C.P Dhakal was appointed as the Chairperson.
The tentative date for the Red Panda Winter Festival is 23rd December 2016 to 29th December 2016. The Control Room at Tourist Information Centre (TIC), M.G Marg has been set up immediately for manning work allocation on rotation basis. The venues for the Red Panda Winter Festival will be M.G Marg, Ridge Park and the Khangchendzonga Roof Top.
This year, it has been proposed that allocation and leasing out of stalls will be outsourced to Gangtok Municpal Corporation (GMC) who will handle the tender/renting/leasing issues to those interested. It has also been decided that the stalls at M.G Marg will not sell any food item or liquor item. All edible items will be sold at the Khangchendzonga Roof Top and at the stalls in Ridge Park.
The next meeting with the HODs and the stake holders has been proposed for the 5th of November 2016.
Make sure you visit Sikkim for the Red Panda Winter Festival and celebrate your Christmas with the whole of Sikkim.
