Hibiscus Festival 2006 to start with a mardi gras
The much-awaited Suva Hibiscus Festival 2006 will start with a mardi gras on the first Friday. The festival, which has not been a feature on Suva's social and fun calendar for a few years, returns this year with new fun activities organised. The festival, so far, has 14 confirmed contestants and aims to raise F$200,000 for charity and works to upgrade Suva. On the final day, a fireworks display from China is being arranged with the Chinese Embassy in Suva. The festival will be held from 18 to 26 August 2006. For those that need accommodation in Suva, a two bedroom furnished home can be viewed and booked with links at the right hand side of this blog or call direct +679 3396427; e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
