Ready for the big day

THE Queen contestants of the 2014 Vodafone Fiji Hibiscus Festival are all ready for the float procession today at 2pm.

Queen contestant co-ordinator Lice Movono-Rova said the float procession was the best part of the Hibiscus Festival for many of the contestants.

"It's been a very hard week. The Queens have had their usual fair share of public scrutiny and public criticism and like every other Queen group that's contested in the festival, the journey has been trying," Mrs Movono-Rova said.

"And while its been challenging as expected, it has also been rewarding for them. They have changed so much and they are all looking forward to the float procession."

The Queen and King contestants were hosted to morning tea on Thursday by the Republic of the Fiji Military Forces and yesterday by the Fiji Police Force.

Meanwhile, Mrs Movono-Rova said the Queens did exceptionally well in their second public judging on Thursday night.

"It was the Bogi ni iTaukei night and the girls were encouraged to wear traditionally inspired evening gowns, our answer to the evening wear of evening pageants and at the Miss South Pacific Pageant there is a category for traditionally inspired costumes."
