Carnival follower lauds float procession

BULOU Koroi has been a part of the Farmers Carnival for as long as she can remember.

The Buabua, Lautoka lass believes the event is an important part of fostering unity in the community.

Witnessing the carnival float procession has since become a norm for her family and yesterday, she brought her three-year-old son to the event and did not leave unsatisfied.

"I have been to the Farmers Carnival again this year and it has been pretty good," she said. "I especially loved the rides and stalls. Last year was a bit more spacious but that was something different about the carnival this year."

She said the committee should be commended for the great arrangement of the carnival in the previous years.

"Even today (yesterday), we saw a very good float procession. I am planning to go to the carnival tonight (yesterday) to witness the crowning event.

Mrs Koroi was among hundreds of people who lined the streets of Lautoka yesterday to catch a glimpse of the five contestants.

Committee president Udit Narayan had earlier stated all proceeds from the carnival would go towards helping underprivileged students.
