The Heilala Week Festival 2013 is confirmed at Vuna Wharf from June 24 through to July 6, a post on the Miss Heilala Supporters Face Book page says.
Former Miss Heilala and strong supporter of the festival, Tafolosa Kaitapu Bloomfield, shared the post and confirmed the date to her friends.
The post went further to appreciate the “Ports Authority Tonga for all the assistance!”
“Village will be up and ready in 2 weeks time! Come let's celebrate what we have accomplish and work towards a brighter future for Tonga,” it says.
"OUR PEOPLE, OUR FUTURE"and that's you and me!
The Heilala Committee has yet to confirm the registration dates for the Heilala week
Last year the festival began on July 16 with a singing and floor-show competition followed by a block party in downtown Nuku'alofa and closed on July 28.
Tonga’s biggest annual festival, that sretches out in two weeks, unites thousands of Tongans in the islands and from overseas. It features a host of events, including a Miss Heilala Pageant, parades of floats, processions, and music festivals.
