Pacific Arts Festival holds closing ceremony in American Samoa

6:51 pm on 31 July 2008

The 10th Festival of Pacific Arts has seen its closing ceremony in American Samoa.

The event showcased performers from around the region in what our correspondent, Monica Miller, says was a success.

"The performers are a bit tired but nonetheless they are very, very pleased with how things have turned out because a lot of the different islanders did not know about the culture of their neighbours."

The next festival will be held in Solomon Islands in 2012.
