Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu to inaugurate the three-day annual event

The Beach Road stretch in the city has been all decked up for the three-day Visakha Utsav, beginning Friday. The annual event will be inaugurated by Chief minister N. Chandrababu Naidu.

The carnival will start from the AU Convention Centre at around 3.30 p.m. The main event is expected to start at 5.30 p.m. with the tribal and folk artistes’ performances. The inaugural ceremony will be followed by the Navy band’s performance.
