Carnival Village In The Heart Of San Nicolas

September 7th 2013, Aruba.

Rendering: Carnival Village, San Nicolas.

SAN NICOLAS-"The Carnival Village in San Nicolas is no longer a plan on paper, it will become a reality,"
says the Minister of Finance, Mike de Meza. The project consists of many green spaces, parking
space, and a large square for entertainment purposes. De Meza invites the people of Aruba to witness the
groundbreaking ceremony of the project in his hometown this afternoon at 16:00hours.

San Nicolas is the birthplace of Aruba's carnival. It is the town where it all started some 60 years ago. It is
more than logical that the Carnival village be constructed in the heart of the city. Once completed the
Carnival Village will host different carnival festivities during Aruba's annual Carnival celebrations. In
addition, it shall be used to showcase Aruba's Carnival festivities and cultural events during the year.

The project has an estimated cost of 6.5 million Aruban florins (3.6 million U.S.$), and is financed by the
Aruba Development Fund. The project will claim part of the refinery territory. Today, the wall of the
refinery shall be demolished near the construction site, marking the symbolic start of the project. The
official construction of the Carnival Village will start on October 1st 2013.
