The Vodafone Festival of the Friendly North which begins tomorrow hopes to raise funds to build a multipurpose hall in Labasa.
A spokesperson for the organising committee, Vincent Sahayam says the money raised from the festival last year and the money raised this year will go towards building the multipurpose hall.
He says the committee has also acquired land which was a big challenge for them.
Sahayam says the festival had raised $200,000 last year and the committee hopes to raise a similar amount this year.
The festival will kick off at around midday tomorrow with a float parade in Labasa town and the evening will be full of entertainment as primary and secondary schools will participate in a dance competition.
There are 11 Queens and 5 Kings participating.
Miss Vodafone Festival of the Friendly North will represent Labasa at the Miss Fiji Pageant.ADVERTISEMENT Listen to the latest news on our 5 radio stations Legend FM, Viti FM, Radio Sargam, FM96 and Navtarang.
