Sea of colours

Mere Naleba
Sunday, August 24, 2014

SUVA City was a sea of colours yesterday as people from all walks of life turned up to be part of the closing float procession for the Vodafone Hibiscus Festival.

Members of the public witnessed a float procession which featured more than 10 nicely decorated floats and hundreds of people marching along Victoria Pde supporting their favourite Hibiscus Queen contestants.

Joana Qica, sponsored by Suva City Council, was awarded the best decorated float with her float portraying images of a developed city which has always been her sponsor's message in keeping the city clean and litter free.

With the theme Climate Change — Affecting Human Lives, Hibiscus Events Group Inc chairman Hirdesh Prasad reminded every Fijian climate change was real and was slowly affecting Fiji.
