Mere Naleba

MEMBERS of the public gathered at Suva's Sukuna Park to be part of the China Cultural Day organised by the Chinese Embassy yesterday.

In celebrating the Chinese new year, spring festival, many people witnessed the lion dance, fan dance and many other cultural activities.

And the event aimed at increasing knowledge of the Chinese culture and tradition in Fiji was hailed a success by many who witnessed the event.

Cunningham resident, Mereama Adivula, who brought her children to the park said the visit was "worth it".

"I had planned to bring the children to come and have lunch at McDonalds then we came across this," she said.

"My young children were afraid at first when they heard the drums and saw the lion dance performers coming towards us, but after one of the Chinese ladies explained the whole scene to us, they were excited".

"It was amazing seeing young girls learning the Chinese fan dance," Mrs Adivula said.

"They did really well; it was just like seeing Chinese girls dance.

"This is an eye-opener for me."
