MC expects more crowd as the charges
are lesser this year
The famous Rose Festival is all set to begin from February 23 at Rose Garden Chandigarh. And just like last year this year too, Chopper ride will be available for Rs 2,400 per person during the three-day Rose Festival. However, the MC has finalised Heritage Aviation for the festival. Therefore, last year, the chopper ride was worth Rs 3,500 per person.
However, as per the officials, it would be a seven to ten-minute ride and will take off from the Parade Ground. Therefore, the route is yet under consideration.
Moreover, the chopper ride was introduced last year at the Rose Festival. And a large number of people turned up for the ride. Therefore, encouraged with the last year’s response, the officials decided to keep it as an added feature this year too. However, the charges are also lesser than last year’s and more crowd is expected to enjoy the ride.
Meanwhile, at the venue, preparations for the fest are in full swing. However, as many as 14,000 rose plants of 829 different varieties will be put on display during the festival. Therefore, the MC has earmarked about Rs 55.67 lakh for the event.
