12 Queens will be vying for the Miss Friendly North crown this year.
The queens were announced during the launching of Vanua Levu’s biggest, most vibrant and iconic festival – the Festival of the Friendly North last night.
Festival Committee Chair Vishwa Deo says the highly anticipated festival will be held in three weeks’ time through the sponsorship of Vodafone.
This year, the main project for the Committee is the supply of a multi-functional ultra sound machine to the Labasa Hospital.
Deo says the machine is really needed and will assist in the early detection of a number of medical complications.
The machines costs approximately $50,000.
The major project the Committee will undertake from this year is the construction of a multi-purpose hall in Vulovi, Labasa to cater for seminars, meetings, events, religious activities and many others.
The theme of this year’s Festival is “Our Health – Our Future.”
