Less than a month ago, Goroka Chamber of Commerce who has been in charge of the famous Goroka show for last 5 years has suddenly walked out and tried to cancel the famous Goroka show.
However, Air Niugini, Bird of Paradise Hotel, Pacific Gardens Hotel, Goroka Trek & Tours and other stake holders came in and told the "old boys", "OK, if you can't run the show, please vacate so that we can run it."
Even though it was a start from the scratch without assurance of the funds, we believed in the old saying "where there is a will, there is a way."
With the limited funds, the committee has purchased the laminating machine and making thousands of show tickets by hands with the help of the volunteers.
Eventually Corporate sponsors have responded for the appeal by the New committee and assisted with funding.
The show can not be cancelled by the people who don't have a heart for Goroka and the show.
The show is the pride of Goroka, Eastern Highlands and Papua New Guinea.
The show will go on.
