Back with a difference

IT is that time of the year again when Fijian families look forward to one of its annual events — the Fiji Showcase.

The event, which kicks off at the Vodafone Arena today, is expected to attract more than 90,000 people compared to previous years, says Total Event Company manager Loretta Jackson.

Known as Fiji's largest trade and entertainment event, the event is said to be different compared to past years.

Ms Jackson said the showcase was an event that took many months to prepare for.

With children's favourite Cookie the Clown's last stage performance, she said children should expect a whole new range of characters to the performance this year.

"One of the things that we will be introducing and the public can look forward to is the character performance.

"Every day at 6pm, there will be a character parade. They will perform on the stage and on the weekend we will actually do it around 2.30pm and 6pm. There's about eight characters that kids can look forward to in seeing, and meeting Dora the Explorer, Ben 10, Sponge Bob, the Minions from Despicable Me, Spiderman and Batman, Kung Fu Panda — that is something for the kids particularly."

Cookie the Clown said he had a lot of surprises for the kids and looked forward to show them what he had been working on.
