Calypso Tents to open this Weekend

The tents are opening this weekend and it is a great showcase of the Calypso talent that we have right here in the city. Below is the info on the individual tents that I pulled from the Caribana website.
I'm not sure why, but I can't seem to find (online) the price of admission. If anybody knows the cost, please leave a comment, I am especially interested in the price for the Professionals because I am in the West end.
