Last NYE fireworks for Lamana

For years, the Lamana Gold Club has done the show for the thousands of people in Port Moresby that take on the streets at Hohola, Waigani, Gordons and so many other neighbourhoods to watch the spectacle.

Lamana Hotel general manager Yiannis Nicolaou said they have been doing this show for free as their contribution to the people of Moresby and Papua New Guinea.

Nicolaou said that the only place available, safe and convenient for them to do the show is the new Treasury building.
