PREPARATIONS for the Sigatoka Day celebration this weekend are going well, says town special administrator Jay Whyte.

He said the town council was finalising some details before the big event on Saturday.

"We are organising the program at the moment and organising the stalls for vendors during the day-long event," he said.

"We haven't finalised how many stalls will be on but it will most probably be around 22.

"We will also be organising a lot of rides and jumping castles for the children. There will be lots of fun competitions and it will be very interactive as well."

The competitions include arm wrestling and roti eating.

"For us, one of the main focus will be celebrating the 78th anniversary of Sigatoka as a township. We are urging people to come out in numbers to support this initiative."

The celebrations will start on Sigatoka's main street at 10am on Saturday and concludes with a fireworks ceremony in the evening.
