After a successful inaugural carnival at Subrail Park in Labasa, Walesi Chief Executive Officer Sanjay Maharaj has decided that it would become an annual event.

Mr Maharaj along with his team organised a one-day event last Saturday at around a cost of $30,000.

“We had the ground available beforehand and it was a lot easier for us to organise everything such as a free ferris wheel ride and bouncer castle for children,” Mr Maharaj said.
