Families and friends around the capital city and even Rotuma celebrated Fiji’s 52nd birthday in style yesterday.

Despite the major celebration at the Lautoka’s Churchill Park, Suva was a hive of activities.

Members of the Assembly of God Church in Waiqanake flocked to Tikaram Park in Lami to enjoy a day full of fun.

It was also the day the church of about 70 members celebrated its 20th anniversary. It entered its new chapter on Sunday.

 

Church pastor, Seru Rokowasa, highlighted that it was important to get out and commemorate the day with loved ones.

“I’d like to thank God for the opportunity to commemorate Fiji Day today. It has not been an easy journey for the nation as a whole,” he said.

“There have been ups and downs, and different circumstances that have affected the nation both politically and economically.

“I’d like to thank God for giving us the resiliency and the tenacity to keep moving forward despite the challenges we face.”

Mr Rokowasa said it was important that families who were missing their loved ones during the celebration to remain positive.

 

“You need to remain hopeful. With God nothing is impossible, we can make it,” he said.

“This might be a tough season for some but if we remain steady and strong, I strongly believe we will overcome the tough season and there is always a brighter light at the end of the tunnel.”

Also in Suva, The Syndicate, Vodafone, FBC and the Suva City Council hosted car enthusiasts a show like no other.

The Total Energies Motor Show had more than 10 cars in their best colours and latest modifications.

 

Rotuma

joined hands with people on the island to celebrate the anniversary.

Former president, Major- General (Ret’d) Jioji Konrote, was part of the celebration, held at the Ahau Government Station.
