AGE certainly did not keep them at home as they joined the crowd on Labasa's main street to welcome the new year.
Mohan Patel, 73, and his wife Shardaben Patel, 69, sat behind the main stage and clapped their hands to the music.
"We came to Labasa four years ago and we love it here," Mr Patel said.
"The people are friendly and the place is just so peaceful."
Mr Patel said he and Shardaben were at home when they heard the music coming from town.
"So, I told my wife for us to come and check out what was happening."
