The Fagatogo market was full of people during the First Friday of the Month event that has become a local ‘event to go to’.
 
People gather to enjoy a variety of food, buy goods at good prices, and faitala — talk story to each other.
 
Photos of other weekend events including DMWR resources, cruise ship Rhapsody of the Seas, the start of the I’a Lapo’a Game Fishing Tournament and a look at progress of the Tri-Marine renovations below.
