The National Capital District is set to celebrate Papua New Guinea’s 41st Independence Anniversary.
The theme of the celebrations is “We the Change”, inspiring us to lead the way if we want to see change.
NCD Governor, Powes Parkop, said the celebrations will include a first of its kind 3-day Independence Street & Music Festival at the Paga Hill ring road.
At a media conference today, NCD Governor, Powes Parkop, said residents of the Nation’s Capital will be given an extraordinary celebration, beginning tomorrow.
The main Independence event will be held at the Sir John Guise Stadium on Friday, September 16. Gates will open at 4:30pm and tickets are selling at K5 Outer Stand and K30 for Grand Stand seating.
The first of its kind Independence Street & Music Festival will run for 3 days, starting tomorrow from 9am to 3pm and will continue through to Saturday. It will be held along the Paga Hill ring road and promises to be an ideal family outing.
Governor Parkop said the theme, We The Change, conveys two distinct messages.
There will also be a community festival at 9 Mile at the site of the old Moresby Show Ground. Activities will also be held at the Jack Pidik Park.
Governor Parkop encouraged citizens to turnout in the national colors of red, black, and gold and celebrate Papua New Guinea’s achievements and future.
