The preparation for the Fiji Broadcasting Corporation’s (FBC) street party at My Sva Picnic Park is going as planned and the public should look forward to what it has to offer.
Viti Browne, the FBC event organiser, said everything was going as scheduled.
“The preparation is going as scheduled with our contractors starting work tonight at 6pm. Therefore the Queen Elizabeth Drive from Maunikau Police Post to Corpus Christi will be closed tonight till New Years Day and our entertainment line-up is all ready to entertain the crowd tomorrow along with the FBC team.
The organisers’ biggest challenge was the last minute change in the venue but this did not discourage them.
“The biggest challenge for us was changing the venue of our annual street
party. For past few years we have had this event in Nadi, however this year, after some talks with the Chamber of Commerce and the Nadi Town Council we had to relocate the event. There were few places we had in mind; however Suva was the best option for us,” Ms Browne said.
“We believe that our viewers and listeners speak for themselves at all our events. This was our main assurance that the event would be successful.,” she said.
“There will be some great local entertainment to look forward to plus a chance to party with our radio and television personalities on the night.”
FBC choose the venue with the members of the public being their main priority and they hope it would be successful.
Ms Browne said this year they were expecting a crowd of between 3000 to 5000 people.
