Celebration a success

AFTER the huge success of Sigatoka Day, the town council now plans to make it an annual event, says special administrator Jay Whyte.

He said the celebration day turned out to be completely marvellous.

"The turnout was fantastic and it exceeded all our expectations as the young, old and everyone in between came out for the day.

"There were huge smiles all around and from our point of view, Sigatoka Day was a huge success."

He said everyone loved the celebration and competitions organised by the town council.

"The main message on the day was regardless of whether you're born in Sigatoka, or you have moved here or even if you're not from Sigatoka, everyone will make you feel welcome.

"Everyone was proud to be associated with Sigatoka on the day and everyone came together to celebrate the town's 78th anniversary.

"It has been a wonderful journey so far and we thank everyone who participated."

Mr Whyte said he got the idea to celebrate Sigatoka Day after browsing through the town history.

"We are now working to have this as an annual event from this year.

"Our message to the public is thank you for being a part of this event and possibly the greatest fireworks display which was sponsored by the Sigatoka River Safari.

"Thank you for building Sigatoka into the great town it is today."
