Fiji Week 2015: A week-long festival celebrating Fiji’s independence
With a year-round tropical climate, a picturesque coastline, and some of the friendliest, most hospitable people you’ll ever meet, any time is a good time to visit the Fijian Isles. Fiji Week, however, is arguably the best time to plan a trip to this one-of-a-kind island destination. The culmination of Fiji Week is Fiji Day, which falls on October 10th each year.
The fact that both events fall on the same day equals twice the fun for locals, tourists, or anyone looking to have a festive good time on one of the true gems in the Pacific Isles.
A weeklong celebration—Fiji style
October 10th marks the annual culmination of what has become a weeklong festival extravaganza known as Fiji Week. Each year a new theme is chosen by organizers to determine the given year’s events and festival acts. Traditionally the celebration of Fiji Day includes a wide range of religious and cultural ceremonies, all designed to unite the nation and call attention to its diversity. For visitors and tourists, it’s a great time to come to Fiji and see a side of the island and its culture that few people are exposed to. The Fiji people are by nature friendly and hospitable and welcome tourists and guests with open arms. That, in and of itself, makes for great Fijian experience.
