FOR the first time, youngsters from the Immaculate Conception Kindergarten from Solevu, Bua were part of the Vodafone Hibiscus Festival in Suva yesterday.

The different amusement games, live music, different types of food and watching the contestants up-close were some of the things the children will remember for the rest of their lives.

Accompanied by their parents the students were happy to participate in the march that marked the official opening of the festival. Teacher Litia Korosavu said the students did not expect to be part of the festival event because they were on their school tour of Viti Levu.

"We were grateful to have been given the opportunity to be part of the march and to be here at the Hibiscus Festival," Ms Korosavu said.

"The students and a few parents have always heard about the festival but haven't really experienced it."

Parent Akeneta Tide said it was the first time for her to visit the Capital City and to be part of the Hibiscus Festival.

"I am really happy to be here and I am sure being part of the event has broadened the children's perspective on what is happening around them," Ms Tide said.
