One of the entertainment activities to be performed as part of celebrating the new Taufa’āhau Tupou IV’s terminal on Friday was captured on video.

The video was uploaded to Facebook this morning by Tourism Minister Sēmisi Sika and it showed dancers singing and practising their hakas.

Staff from the Minister’s two portfolios, the Ministry of Infrastructure and Tourism, came together to dance one of late Kuini Sālote Tupou III’s song compositions, ‘Ūpē ‘O Tāufa’āhau. The song was composed as a lullaby for the late King Taufa’āhau Tupou IV after he was born.

The new wharf is named after him by his son King Tupou VI.

King Tupou VI will open the new $66 million wharf this Friday, June 1.

It was funded by the Japanese government.
