There was a sense of satisfaction in the air from stall owners as the 2014 Vodafone Hibiscus Festival closed last Saturday night.

The owner of Mani’s Candy’s and Rides, Ashika Mani, said the response from the public was very good and had improved significantly.

“We have been selling food at the Hibiscus Festival for the past five years. This year, the business was very good and we have reached our expected profit margins,” he said.

“The event this year grew tremendously compared to previous years.”

Mrs Mani said the weather was also favourable which allowed more people to take advantage of the festival and food.

“This year’s weather has permitted us to get profit and I hope that next year will be the same.”

Surend Chand said the cost of hiring the stall this year was justified.

“Stalls cost $2800, which I think is very reasonable compared to the turn out this year,” Mr Chand said.

Barbecue stall owners shared similar sentiments.
