Linked-in Corporation president Belezar Ola has written to the Baguio City Council seeking permission to set up carnival rides at Burnham Park.

Mr. Ola, in his letter, asked to use Children's Park from February 1 to April 30, 2020 with a sum of P500,000 for an amusement park set-up, skilled games and food to go to kiosks.

“To add more attractions and create limitless fun and entertainment to the Panagbenga Festival, our firm, Linked–in Corporation, a renowned pop up American park organizer would like to propose to conduct a family oriented mini carnival rides at the Children’s Park subject to terms and conditions you require,” Ola in his letter said.

Mr. Ola added that the company, if given permission to operate the city park, would provide marshals, security, maintenance, and a housekeeping crew with a first aid clinic.

The previous council approved the carnival setup last year with a rent of P500,000 for five months at the city's busiest park, which was met by opposition from residents and the sector.

The Office of the City Environment and Parks Administration in a review dropped the previous carnival pointing to the lack of layout of carnival rides. The carnival has gained a lot of attention from residents and netizens who allege gambling and that the site rides are not safe.
