Jason Bharat, his wife and their 16-monthold daughter, Janice were among the more than 15,000 people who turned up for the second day of the FIJI Showcase 2012.

The estimation on the number of visitors on the second day of FIJI Showcase was made by The Total Event Company's manager, Loretta Jackson.

Ms Jackson said this year's showcase was different because there was more variety of shopping, more home and household products, particularly food and more international entertainers compared to previous years.

"More variety of local entertainment; Tongan Young 5, Masti Dance Group, i-Taukei bands, the Navtarang Bollywood Dhamaka Show and the FM96 Talent Quest to name a few."

She said FIJI Showcase continued to assist organisations like Save the Children Fiji, Yellow Ribbon and Friends of Fiji by allowing them to participate in FIJI Showcase at no charge.

While Mrs Bharat explored the various food stalls, The Fiji Times had a brief chat with Mr Bharat who said it was his first visit to Fiji Showcase.

"I've always been too busy in the past years to visit. I'm really enjoying myself.

"I like the atmosphere. There are a lot of things on special, the food's tasty and it's a lot cheaper then I expected.

"We're mostly just here to browse, try the food and maybe see what goods we can get on special price. I like the way the event was set up."

He was particularly impressed with the security and the way the crowd were being managed.

Mr Bharat applauded the kids corner in particular the bracelets with the addresses and phone numbers of parents being attached to young children.
