BUSINESS is booming for the 20-plus stallholders at the Farmers Carnival this year.

And with all the entertainment free of charge, people have been flocking to catch a glimpse of the five queen contestants.

Farmers Carnival president Udit Narayan said the carnival was gaining popularity as it approached mid-week.

"It has been going well and so far, the carnival has been incident-free," Mr Narayan said.

"The crowd has been very energetic and people have been coming out in numbers to enjoy themselves."

The five queen contestants are visiting various organisations throughout the course of the week and were present at the Lautoka City Council office yesterday.
