All Fijians are being encouraged to take part in the 45th Independence Day celebrations that will be held around the country today.
Permanent Secretary for Defence Osea Cawaru says Fijians should fly the Fiji flag with pride to reflect on the achievements we have made as a country.
“Specifically we can reflect on the various challenges the nation has overcome and we have managed to survive complex situations only through sound political leadership of government and the strong will of all Fijian people.”
The theme for the celebrations this year is “Togetherness in Harmony for a Prosperous Fiji”.
Some roads in the Laucala Bay area in Suva will be closed to accommodate the celebrations.
There will be a march from Vatuwaqa Primary School to the Bidesi Grounds next to the ANZ Stadium.
As such, the junction off Grantham Road into Laucala Bay Road and the junction off Queen Elizabeth Drive off Laucala Bay Road will be closed from 7:45am – 9:30am.
Another national celebration ceremony will be held in the afternoon also at Bidesi Park and Queen Elizabeth Drive from the Muanikau junction to the junction of Laucala Bay Road will be temporarily closed off from 2pm – 3:30pm.
You can watch the Fiji Day celebration live at 1:30pm on FBC TV.
Meanwhile, celebrations will also be held at Subrail Park in Labasa, Senior Citizens Home in Lautoka while Levuka will commemorate Independence Day tomorrow.
