I-Guana Bite is the new name for the recently renovated Pinecrest Gardens concession tower.
I-Guana Bite was the name submitted by Charlinne Garcia’s fifth-grade class at Pinecrest Elementary as a result of a Name the Concession Tower contest conducted during September. The concession tower overlooks Swan Lake where hundreds of iguanas reside.
After sorting through over a hundred entries, a short list was created by the Pinecrest Gardens staff and sent to the Pinecrest municipal center for a final decision.
Manny Diaz, student representative for Garcia’s class, submitted the name in hopes of surprising the teacher. Ms. Garcia will receive a $30 Sprout Eco Friendly Watch and Diaz will get a $20 concession tower gift certificate. A sign will be placed at the concession tower recognizing Garcia and her class for the new concession name.
