Fiji Day is a day well associated with get-together’s with family and friends.
It was even more special for hundreds of people who took time out with their loved at FBC’s Fiji Day Free Concert at Albert Park in Suva.
Spirits were high as crowds of people gathered to celebrate Fiji Day at Albert Park in Suva today.
Geared with mats and umbrellas ready, families and friends came out in numbers at FBC’s Fiji Day Free Concert to commemorate Fiji Day.
FBC Chief Executive, Riyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says the free concert is FBC’s part as a media organization in bringing people together on our independence day.
“Official celebrations were held this morning and now FBC is having our celebrations, tons of people, lots of food, lots of music. For the first time this year we also had a competition on all our radio six stations for the best Fiji day Poem which would talk about inclusiveness, unity, togetherness and a sense of belonging in our country.”
FBC News also caught up with one of the winners of FBC’s Fiji Day Radio Poem Competition Elenoa Namata who today read her poem live at Albert Park.
“I thought of my country and my land today, I am 75 years old and have lived through a lot of what has happened in our history all these events I thought about and penned down a poem. I came today to share my poem and experiences and I’m sure those who heard my poem today were happy to know some of that history that I shared.”
The Free Concert which features live bands, dance groups, rides, face painting, giveaways and food stalls ends at 8 tonight.
