Sigatoka Town came alive on Wednesday as people from all walks of life gathered in big numbers to catch a glimpse of a massive fireworks display at the banks of the Sigatoka River.

The fireworks display was in celebration of the rugby-mad town’s 80th anniversary.

Second secretary of the Indonesian Embassy Nugrah Purniawan was chief guest at the event.

He congratulated the township for its rich history and development over the 80 years.

“This year’s theme of ‘Service Before Self for 80 Years’, is fitting with the council since its primarye duty is to provide services to the ratepayers, the business community and the general public,” Mr Purniawan said.

“I am fond of this town, as just recently the Embassy was working with Sigatoka Methodist School and Cuvu College in conducting the Indonesian Film Festival. I was happy to see students of both schools enjoy the Indonesian film that was showcased.”

The celebration was hosted in collaboration with the Vodafone Coral Coast Carnival and it was marked with an Indonesian-themed night.

The evening featured Indonesian traditional dances and Indonesian attires fashion show.

“Carnival such as this gives great opportunity for people to have quality fun time with their beloved family.”
