THE Chinese community in Lautoka has been quick to lend a hand to help the Farmers Carnival Committee.

President Udit Narayan said Chinese business owners bought about 21 stalls at the Farmers Carnival that begins this weekend.

He said the 20 food stalls had been sold.

"We have also been successful in selling 38 flea market stalls and only two stalls are left, which I am confident will be sold off before the carnival starts."

He said Paddys had the biggest stall at the festival.

"We have also rides being put up during the week and the five contestants are preparing for this as well.

"We are urging members of the public to come and support us for this carnival as all our programs are free of charge."

The carnival begins on June 21 and ends on June 28.
