Celebrating Rivers Rich Cultural Heritage

The 60,000 capacity Tafawa Balewa Square venue of the finale of the 2015 Lagos Carnival was packed to the brim as carnival attendees chanted, clapped, stumped and danced with each and every performance troupe that paraded the square.

Imbued with lively parades and festive colours, the carnival is a must-see event that has indeed grown in its six years of existence by reinventing and making itself an integral part of the preeminent African tourism destinations.

The climax of the carnival featured ensemble performances by energetic and talented young men and women. Attendees were enthralled by the innovative, high energy, flawless and well-coordinated dance sequences that were performed in uniformity and precision.
