Cold and wet fails to deter revellers

THE cold and wet Suva afternoon could not dampen the spirits of the public as they showed up in large numbers to the FBC Park Jam.

FBC events manager Apenisa Naitini said it was overwhelming to see people not deterred by the weather.

"It's a family event. An alternative social event which brings families together, give a platform for our local musicians and allows people to be a part of an economic activity as well," said Mr Naitini.

"There is also not much school children can do after the Coke Games, so the Park Jam also provides them with entertainment and discourages them from being part of illegal activities.

"We were hoping for better weather but it has turned out all right as people have come."

Apart from those enjoying the music, vendors saw this as an opportunity to make extra money.

More than three thousand people turned up for the Park Jam.
