LAUTOKA'S special administrator Praveen Bala plans to turn the Sugar City into the Western Division's entertainment capital.

Hot on the heels of the international rugby tests and mega events like the Farmers Carnival, Sugar Festival, Arise Fiji, Adi Salusalu and Crest Agriculture Show, Lautoka plays host to the Western Division Chow Games finals which ends today. The finals will be followed by the Fiji Broadcasting Corporation Limited's Park Jam at Churchill Park.

"Beginning with the mammoth Rara Rumble which signalled the start of the New Year, we have hosted many events here in Lautoka," said Mr Bala.

"It is good to see the Chow Games return to its roots after a 27-year hiatus and I urge the organisers to continue to host this event right here in Lautoka. We have the facilities, the weather and most of all the warmth of the Lautoka people."

Mr Bala acknowledged FBCL for hosting the Park Jam in Lautoka because of the event's entertainment value and its ability to inspire youth to showcase their talents in the future.

"The Park Jam is a family event designed to entertain the kids. It will showcase some very prominent music and entertainment personalities which should serve as an inspiration for budding artists," he said.
