PREPARATIONS are in progress to transform Fiji's Capital City into a city of lights this festive season.

Suva special administrator Chandu Umaria said the city would light up from next week.

Mr Umaria said this year the city would be completely changed and decorated with lights and decorations. "We have budgeted a substantial amount for the decoration of the city this year.

"This is to engage to share the spirit of the festive season to people visiting the capital," he said.

Mr Umaria said the lights would be placed at major roundabouts, markets, the bus stand and the Suva foreshore.

He said apart from the decorating the city, council officials would clean all churches and important areas in the central business district.

"We clean various religious organisations' compounds during major festivals.

"In Diwali council workers cleaned temples in the Suva area, mosques during Eid and it will be churches during Christmas."

Mr Umaria called on business organisations in the city to clean and decorate their shops for the festive season.
