The 2014 Fiji Evening Gala
The Embassy of the Republic of Fiji & Viti-DC
To Support Peace Corps Partnership and
Development Projects in Fiji
The 2014 Gala was a tremendous success. The day started at Potomac Overlook Park in Arlington with many volunteers helping prepare a Fiji style feast cooked in a lovo, or earth oven.
Hours later the lovo’s bounty was unearthed, loaded into vans, and taken to the Gala ballroom where volunteers continued with preparations for the party. At 6:00 PM guests arrived to find a hall beautifully decorated in Fiji style, island music filling the air, and a buffet table overflowing with Fijian and Indian dishes.
