The Lautoka Sugar Festival is a weeklong celebration with absolutely nothing in it to remind of you of sugar, how it’s made, how delicious it is or how important it is to the community. No sugarcane juice, no tasty confectionaries, and “ice cream.” What they did have was five Ferris wheels made by long interlocking metal pipes and spun by the rear axle of a car. For the kiddies there were smaller Ferris wheels, and planes and horses that go around in a horizontal circle. Finishing where you begin is a big thing here.
Also there were barbeque stands and a parade.
