For the first time ever the Radio Fiji Two and Mirchi FM Diwali Mela was held in Labasa over the weekend.
A large crowd gathered to witness the event and people also took time to see what was on offer for the day.
The event started with a thali competition where for the first time eight i-Taukei ladies took part in the competition.
Events Coordinator Ruby Solanki says the event illustrates that Diwali brings Fijians of all persuasions together to celebrate a festival that aims in sharing happiness with one another.
“It was an excellent event, people turned up in large numbers, the school ground was full.”
Plans are in place for a bigger and better event next year.
