The Bua showcase will kick off today at the Naulumatua Grounds in Nabouwalu.

This was confirmed by Tui Wainunu Ratu Orisi Baleitavea and at the same time calling on members of the public to join the festivities.

“It’s an end of the year event and I’m urging people to come forward and enjoy what has to be offered during this festive period,” Ratu Orisi said.

He said the fact that they survived some of major hurdles during the year including Tropical Cyclone Winston, made the event extra special.

“We were able to endure TC Winston with some communities in the province losing more than the rest, so let us use this time to come together and encourage each other as people of Cakaunitabua,” Ratu Orisi said.

“This is a time where we get together as a province for a better cause. The money raised from the event is for development purposes within the province.”

He said the event which was organised by the Bua Provincial Council would be followed by the Adi Bua tomorrow and Friday with the aim to raise $150,000.

“This is also a chance to showcase what our Province is known for in terms of handicrafts, dialect, dish, dressing style and many more,” Ratu Orisi said.

The Permanent Secretary for the Ministry of iTaukei Affairs Naipote Katonitabua will be officiating at the event.

The nine districts in the Province helped raised $169,000 at last year’s event.
