JOINING the hype of welcoming 2014, the Rakiraki Town Council will stage its inaugural street party on new year's eve.
Interim special administrator Ralulu Cirikiyasawa said he was expecting a lot of people for the event.
"I am hoping everyone will come out in numbers and enjoy this event because we have only been hearing about such events happening in Suva and Nadi," he said.
Businesses have been showing support for the event and Mr Cirikiyasawa said they were joining hands with Ba radio station Radio Paschim.
"We are also looking to securing permits from the district officer and get police officers in terms of protection," he said.
"This will be a liquor-free party and people of all ages can come and enjoy."
