While many spent their time at home yesterday after a heavy Sunday lunch, some went down to the 2015 Vodafone Hibiscus Festival venue at the Carpenters Foreshore in Suva.

BBQ and Fastfood stall owner Haizal Shah, 47, of Kelland Street in Narere said the weather was not good for business.

“Bad weather makes business slow,” he said.

Mr Shah said the ground was getting worse because of the continuous rain and he was hoping for good weather in order to make a profit in this week-long carnival.

“This is just Day Three and we are hoping for a much better weather and a bigger crowd in the days ahead,” he said.

Mr Shah sells BBQ, chicken palau and other Indian delicacies in his stall.

Meanwhile, Roselyn Singh, 30, of New Town sells Indian sweets with her family at the ground.

She said they had been operating during every Hibiscus but had found this year’s carnival to be very slow for business.

“The main problem is the weather; we are lucky that a few customers are coming in which is a good sign on a slow day like this,” she said.
