THE new Ba Civic Museum to be launched by Prime Minister Rear Admiral Voreqe Bainimarama this Friday will showcase the history of the province.

The event will be held in conjunction with the 75th anniversary of the Ba Town Council.

Ba Town Council CEO Dip Narayan said nine schools had volunteered some of their students for the march to join sports personalities, farmers, chiefs and government reps.

"This is a major event for the year, 75 years for a town council that has grown and also achieved much for the people of Ba," said Mr Narayan.

"To top it off is the inauguration of our own museum by the Prime Minister, and this is a project which has been in the pipeline for a while."

Mr Narayan said the museum would include history on how the town was set up, the sugar cane industry, Ba sporting achievements, including traditional past of the vanua and chiefly structures.

The event will begin with a march through town by the Fiji Police Band at 10am.
