Heavy downpour didn’t stop people from lining both sides of Laucala Bay Road yesterday to catch a glimpse of the Vodafone Hibiscus festival Queens and Kings during the float procession in Suva.

Hundreds of parents, children and patrons with warm clothes and umbrellas braved the cold weather just to watch the procession that began from Flagstaff.

“I came down with my kids and we are definitely enjoying the float procession, despite the rainy weather,” said father of two, Marika Lakotani, of Domain, Suva.

In regards to the float procession, the crowd that showed up wasn’t that much maybe because of the weather, according to 20-year-old Nikhan Khan, of Twinkle Star Pre-school, who also had a float during the march.

“But it was a very good procession despite the weather,” said Ms Khan.

Overall everyone seemed to be in a jovial mood as the crowd continued to pour in at the Vodaone Arena at Laucala Bay, Suva.
