Despite the erratic weather over the weekend, people still flocked to the Hikutavake show day on saturday.
Hikutavake is the first village this year to kick start village show day events.
This year also marks the second year that the village showday has been split on lower and upper terraces with sentiments and encouragement expressed by store vendors on the lower terrace for the one showday for next year.
At the village green, 13 stalls congregated selling various produce and handcrafts with the crowd entertained by dancing of both visitors and locals.
Acknowledging the many events on the day, the show day ended with a prayer allowing visitors and store vendors the opportunity also to visit and witness other shows at the Taoga Festival.
