Rewa festival begins this week

Tuesday, October 31, 2017

Update: 12:49PM WITH an estimated attendance of more than 30,000 people, the inaugural festival for the province of Rewa will kick start at Syria Park in Nausori on Thursday this week.

A statement by the Rewa Festival organising committee said the event was created to  help achieve development goals with the help of its newly established Non-Government Organisation (NGO) Rewa Care.

"The province of Rewa has been a strong component of embracing different cultures by integrating Fijians of Indian descent into the vanua of Noco through their 'Luvendra na Ratu' initiative," the statement said.

The organising committee have also engaged the Uto ni Yalo to organise a cleanup campaign for the Rewa River in association with the Rewa water taxis and paddlers association to coincide with the opening of the festival.

The three-day event will take place this week from November 2nd to 4th.
