He revealed that as part of the charity drive funds raised from the charity would be channeled towards the upgrading of the Nadi Hospital’s emergency ward.

Funds from the festival have always been diverted towards the upgrading of the district hospital’s different wards and this year will be no exception.Another latest attraction for business houses supporting the festival this year is that we will give them free advertising space in our newly opened website.Therefore, we are pleading with the business community to come forward and join forces with us to make the festival a great success.Our committee is now inviting aspiring girls to register their expression of interest for this year’s Bula beauty pageant.We also request stall owners to start booking their spaces from now to avoid any last moment regret as all stalls will be on first come first serve basis.

Meanwhile, Bula Festival remains the only carnival in the country which has not lapsed since 1960.
