Sri Lanka records highest-ever tourist arrivals of 2.1 4 inch silicone wristbands3 mln this yearCityfolk Festival 2009: Dayton"s Best Music Festival Taking the stage by storm will be Seattle"s own, THEESatisfaction who are not only in town to celebrate the 1 year anniversary of thier collective, but are also here on their first-ever tour: The Black Weirdo Tour. The band has also toured states like New Jersey, New York and even toured with the South by Southwest (SXSW) film and festival wristbands in Austin, Texas. Besides becoming golf"s largest amateur golf tournament, the Golf.Com World Amateur Handicap Championship is one of the world"s greatest annual reunions. Golfers from every U.S. state and two dozen countries gather every year during the last week in August to not only compete in a professional tour-event wristbands, but also to renew friendships from years past, and make new ones for years to come. KEN STRINGFELLOW: Not really. The album sport wristbands was really sculpted and worked over. There was an intense rehearsal period, an intense recording period, an intense editing period, an intense mixing period. I feel like we labored over it a lot, but because we had a deadline, we didn"t over do it...by any means. KEN STRINGFELLOW: I love a couple bands I worked with recently--Oh, Libia! from Spain, who are like freaked out Apples In Stereo; and Hanggai, from Beijing, who mix Mongolian folk music with rock and indie sounds. During this phase, you should decide on the number of participants that you will be comfortable hosting. Are you visualizing a small group of less than 20 people? Or do you see yourself talking to a larger group perhaps in the hundreds? These events are fun and exciting. I personally will be going to Delta Fair and Music Festival so that I can take my daughter to enjoy all of the rides and see all of the vendors, I am a sucker for good crafts and end up spending a bundle. On that note, I hope this will guide you in some ideas for the weekend. Labor Day signifies the end of summer and there is no need to let it go to waste.
COLOMBO -- Sri Lanka received more than 2.3 million tourists so far this year, the highest ever recorded in history, a minister here said on Wednesday.
Sri Lankan tourism promotion minister John Amaratunga told Xinhua that a large number of tourists arrived in the country this year, with an increase against the 2.2 million arrivals reported by the end of last year.
The tourism development authority would calculate how many tourists came from each different country to Sri Lanka later, Amaratunga added.
"We now see some tourists disembarking at Colombo seaport. In the past, we recorded arrivals at the Colombo airport only," he said.
He also said this year"s increase was a significant growth amidst spells of natural disasters such as floods that hit the country from time to time, and the outbreak of Dengue epidemic also influenced the tourism industry this year.
The minister said he has submitted proposals for the development of some domestic airports in the country to facilitate the tourism industry.
China is the second largest tourism market for Sri Lanka with 249,000 arrivals so far this year.
