THE four-day Seaqaqa Festival has benefited stallholders with people coming in numbers to take advantage of their services.
The event, which started on Wednesday, did not only promise a fun-filled and entertaining week for the people in the area but also a time to rake in more money for stallholders.
Food stalls, amusement rides, fun activities for the children, various entertainment and a rugby sevens tournament were among some of the activities at Seaqaqa Central College grounds.
For stallholder Mohammed Aruf Khan, the four days were profitable.
"Last night, most of the stalls ran short of food as people converged in large numbers to buy from us," he said yesterday.
"Most of us have earned profit of more than $100 and we are really happy that such an event is also a time to earn good money for our families."
Villager Peni Degei shared similar sentiments, saying his elder sister who hired a stall at the festival, was happy about the boom in business.
"People continue to come and buy and we are just glad they are taking advantage of our services," he said.
The festival, Mr Degei said, was a quick way of earning good money.
