“Preparations for the event is well underway, most exhibitors are setting up the tents today (yesterday) and contractors are also assisting with the final touch up,” Mr Singh said.

He said they were expecting a good turn out.

“It will be a fun-filled event with lots of food and things to see and learn. There will be participation from local community and school students and the entry will be free,” he said.

“So we are expecting a good crowd on each of the night,” Mr Singh said.

The event will be opened by the President, Ratu Epeli Nailatikau, today from 9am at the FNU Campus, Namaka. With live entertainment and display provided the public are urged to attend the event.

“There will be live cooking displays by celebrity chefs and fine dining which will offer $30 per person for a three course meal with a complimentary glass of wine,” Mr Singh said.
