The 300-strong Fijian community is inviting the Wanganui community to celebrate Fiji Day with them tomorrow.
They will entertain with Pasifika dance and song and Fijian traditional foods and items will be for sale in the Aramoho School hall from 10.30am to 3pm.
Fijian community president Viliame Kuruyabaki said Fiji gained independence from Britain on October 10, 1970, and for those who now lived in Wanganui it was a time to celebrate their culture in a fun day.
Children from the Born and Raised Pasifika Early Childhood Centre will entertain at the event.

Mr Kuruyabaki said the Fijian community's children attended the centre and they continued to work together which kept them strong in their culture.
"We are lucky to be here in New Zealand, and Wanganui is a good place for us," said Mr Kuruyabaki, who has lived in Wanganui with his family of five children for 10 years.
