Food and market stalls that are part of the Fijian Broadcasting Corporation’s 68th anniversary celebration saw a boom in sales today.
The majority of entrepreneurs say the past two years have been difficult due to the pandemic, but this year they have seen huge improvements.
Sweets and snacks operator Ranjila Devi, who operates her business from home, was delighted to set up a stall at Albert Park in Suva.
“Business is good, well it started at 9am but now because of the weather it’s sunny and I can see people here coming with their kids to have fun.”
Shaad Akbar, a food stall operator, shared similar sentiments.
“Yeah, it’s slowly picking up and hopefully we’ll have a good comeback by the afternoon.”
The FBC concert is currently underway at the Albert Park in Suva and six artists will be giving free shows until 8 p.m.
Dozens of Fijians are taking advantage of free medical check-up services provided by a Ministry of Health team.
Today’s event allowed hundreds of families and friends to come together, get some fresh air and enjoy the food and rides offered at the event.
A signed and framed Swire Shipping Fijian Drua jersey will be drawn between 6 and 7 p.m. only for those who attended and registered for the concert.
