“We are swinging into full operation now for Carnival. This is the crucial preparation stage in order to be fully ready for when Carnival officially opens. We urge all booth-holders and season-pass registrants to stick to the payment deadlines to avoid any misunderstandings,” SCDF stated in a press release on Sunday.
