Fiji’s capital city, Suva was transformed into a sea of colours, bula smiles, mouth-watering dishes, loud cheers and laughter with the grand opening of the 2012 Hibiscus Festival under fine weather conditions at Albert Park today.

The festival, labeled the mother of all Fiji festivals, began with a march featuring the contestants in their beautiful costumes led by the very entertaining Fiji Police Force dance band through the main City street to Albert Park where the contestants were introduced to the public for the first time.

In opening the Hibiscus Festival 2012 today, Health Minister Dr Neil Sharma said youths play a big role in national building as they are the future of tomorrow.

He called on them to also advocate and raise awareness on health issues, saying the 2012 Hibiscus Festival is a platform for youths to do so.

The acting chairman of the Hibiscus Events Group Inc, Hirdesh Prasad echoed the same sentiments and unveiled this year’s theme ‘NCDs - SNAP out of it”.

Suva City administrator Chandu Umaria said the event brings people together.

“There is no barrier to this festival,” he said.

“The festival is not all about fun but also a learning opportunity.”

The week-long festival will culminate with the crowning night next Saturday.
