The Voda­fone Hi­bis­cus Fes­ti­val float pro­ces­sion will start from Rewa Street near the Flagstaff phar­macy and travel along the Lau­cala Bay Road on the fi­nal day of the fes­ti­val. Hi­bis­cus Events Group ex­ec­u­tive chair­man, Hird­esh Prasad said the change fol­lows the new venue at the Voda­fone Arena at Lau­cala Bay Road. Pre­vi­ously, the float pro­ces­sion would go through the cap­i­tal city’s main street. He said the ground will be op­er­a­tional by Fri­day and ready to serve the pub­lic. “The new venue is a bless­ing in dis­guise for us and peo­ple will not have to worry about the muddy ground with the solid foun­da­tion and the per­fect sur­face that’s set up,” he said. He said the group is work­ing with the Fiji sports coun­cil and the Fiji po­lice force in en­sur­ing tight se­cu­rity dur­ing the fes­ti­val. Mr Prasad is plead­ing with par­ents to en­sure their chil­dren wear proper at­tire dur­ing rainy weather and keep them close by as they move around the ground.
