Rain means no Agricultural Show in Tonga

11:23 am on 19 August 2016

Tonga's Royal Agricultural Show has been delayed for a second week.

The show on Tongatapu was put off last week because of poor weather and rescheduled for today (FRI) and tomorrow, but the rain has continued and the postponement has been extended.

Radio Tonga reports the Agriculture minister, Semisi Fakahau, saying the current weather conditions will prevail for several more days.

According to him, they postponed activities to ensure the safety of farmers and other participants.

A new date for the event is yet to be announced.
