The first Orange festival got underway at Rüsoma village, about some 12km away from here Friday.

The two-day long festival offers the visitors an opportunity to visit orange orchards and pick their own oranges from the trees besides touring the village, which is known for the legend of Sopfünuo.

The orange farmers are selling their produce at stalls that have been set up. Rüsoma Village Council (RVC) has fixed the rate of orange at Rs. 80 per kg for the festival.

Conceptualized by Thejakielie Zuyie and Kevitsu Doze of “Bostimanu Entertainment”, the first Orange Festival aims to promote rural tourism and give “entertainment” to the rural areas.

A family oriented event, the festival is taking place in the open terrace fields where parents could bring their children and enjoy the ambience of a rural setting. The organisers have expressed delight over the positive response they received on the first day of the festival.

Other highlights of the festival include Fresh Orange Juice, Stalls selling organic vegetables, food stalls, Zip line, Handicrafts, Kids Bouncy, Family activities, BBQ, Orchard Tour, Camping, and live music. The second day of the festival would also feature competitions for the Biggest Orange and the Sweetest Orange.

Launched on December 3,1990. Nagaland Post is the first and highest circulated newspaper of Nagaland state. Nagaland Post is also the first newspaper in Nagaland to be published in multi-colour.
