Vendors at the Nausori Municipal Market were in for a pleasant sur­prise yesterday when they were vis­ited by queen contestants for the Voda­fone Tebara Carnival.

The contestants met and chatted with ven­dors during the visit.

Senior co-ordinator for the Vodafone Tebara Carnival Sangeeta Kumar said the theme for this year’s carnival was our en­vironment our future.

Ms Kumar said one of the major reasons for taking the contestants to the market was for them to know how far the town had developed. “Despite being very busy, we brought them here today so that they know where they come from.

“It is a nice gesture for them to be polite to people see what they have bought for the entire week which they have worked for and what produce they brought in for the people to buy.It is for their general knowl­edge.

“It is not only becoming a queen, but to be a queen you have to go down to grassroots people to do things which you have not done before,” Ms Kumar said.

The 2018 Vodafone Tebara Carnival will end next week on Saturday, May 19, 2018, with the queen’s crowning.
